Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes! AKA a Bit of Triple Embossing :)

Nice & easy challenge this week at Stampin' for the Weekend - "Anything Goes".  Our sponsor this time is Sir Stampalot & there will be a fab prize for the winner :)

I wanted to make something different so made a pendant.  I cut a rectangle of thick cardboard & coloured it with raisin & currant coloured inks by Adirondack (Tim Holtz).  I inked it with a clear embossing pad & added ultra think embossing power, heated with at heat gun & repeated this 3 (might have been more actually) times & then while it was still hot stamped it with a butterfly stamp inked with Brillance ink in Platinum Planet (the edges of the pendant were also inked with this).  I added 3 gems for the finishing touch.

I'm entering this Pendant for these challenges:
Sir Stampalot - Bring on the Bling
Simon Says - Make a Gift
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes 
Crafty Creations - Butterflies
