Okay, so it's hardly perfect, but here's my first crack at triple time stamping.  It took a wee bit of math (ack) to get the layers right, and then I buggered up the actual black stamp so it looked 'eh', hence the ribbon over the center and the pop-up circle, but I think it turned out pretty nicely.  I heat embossed the sentiment and used blue (China blue?  Maybe?) Distress Ink as well as two different turquoises for the background stamping.  Seriously, if I could, I'd heat emboss everything.  Still not great at getting all the little bits off, even with the anti-static thing I bought.  Advice is greatly appreciated!






And a closer look at the triple stamping effect:




I'd love your thoughts!  Concrit loved.  Smiley

It's beautiful!

I'm not a huge embosser, so I don't quite know what you mean by you don't "get all the little bits off". Are you referring to the embossing powder?

Thank you, Racky! 

And yes - the embossing powder stuck to some oils on the paper which is Sad because I did use the embossing buddy (basically it's a little muslin bag filled with baby powder or something to get rid of static.)

I wish I knew what to do about that, but I'm sorry, I don't. Maybe just go ahead and emboss and call them "accents"?
