Some Hand Embossing...

Hi there ladies.
I must say that on Moday when I had a look at the challenge on Simon Says Stamp and Show I  was a little dissapointed, because as you know I am not at home. My Big Shot is at I thought I will have to I would have to sit this one out, as  I could not do any embossing!
On Tuesday morning we opened a new bottle of Tahini for breakfast....I saw the foil and washed and saved it,,,,,an flashbulbs started flashing....embossing hand embossing!! Woopie!!
So yesterday I streamed on my channel Zeffy Scraps and I made this tag with embossing!!
I used my Martha Steward Score Board that was delivered here on Monday, and I scored my tag at 1/4" intervals then flipped it around and scored it we have checks Voila!
I folded foil and glued it down (4layers) and pressed it over a Tim Holtz stamp using my bone folder...see video here I then inked the foil with some Smooch Spritz...glued it down carefully with  Studio Multi -medium...
I decided to give the dressform a bosom...the real ones do have a bust after all!
I used some batting, but a tiny ball of paper would have been better....then I added some foil from a chocolate for the bodice....
I have a little piece of  Basic Grey "Out of Print" that I cut with a lace border punch under my gathered lace...
The green belt is cord that I wrapped around the waist...and used an ear-ring for bling...
Please note the foil circle from the Tahini under the flower and dress has been hand embossed with my stylus, inked and covered with tiny tiny tiny balls!!!
I hope you like it..if you have any questions, just ask...
Lots of love....and....keep cool!
