Retro!

Can't even remember the last time I used my ultra thick embossing powder--years ago!  Caryn's project inspired me to get it out for my Impression Obsession Birthday Challenge entry.  I actually have several colors of the powder and used clear & bronze for this project.  I started by inking a piece of a recycled granola bar box with VersaMagic Jumbo Java.  I melted several layers of the powders & added some amethyst & copper ROXS--also in my stash for years.  Next I pressed the inked Impression Obsession Three Little Twigs (E8829) into the melted powder.  Haven't used my wire in ages either--fun to add it to this project. The IO sentiment, A6977, is black embossed. 

Fun to do something different--may have to try out my other ultra thick powders. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday, Seize the Birthday, Pixies Snippets Playground & Uniko.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
