CTMH April technique - Embossing is back

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! 

This month there are 11 of us highlighting the Embossing is Back TechniqueThis blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

If you are coming from Catherine Nowak's Blog, you are on the right track! 

I used the gold embossing powder to print my grandson's feet and hands
to create a visual to illustrate the Micah 6:8 Bible verse.
"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
And to walk humbly with your God."

I must give credit to Pinterest where I found this idea.
Though, I cannot find the source; it appears that the original post no longer exists.

 CTMH products used: Lagoon and Black CS with Gold embossing powder.  Plus the Plantin School house and Stone Script fonts.Cricut cut letters were"welded" using Cricut Craft Room.  Still working on getting a decent photo and having the words "pop".  I think it needs a white outline.  Any other suggestions?

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Di Crawford's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
