The Stampman Challenge - Embossing

Had a little play yesterday and made an ATC for the first time in ages. I  was actually popping the grungeboard letters out so that I could use the waste as a mask when I thought may as well use the letters as well :o)
The background has been stamped with the SU friendship stamp, then I've masked and sprayed with Dylusion sprays in lime and vanilla custard, and a homemade perfect pearls and DI one.
I've stamped the TH bird stamp in black then in brown as close as I could to it just to blur the edges a little.
The grungeboard letters were coloured with black soot DI, then tripple embossed in Moon Glow Two Toned Morning Glory/Azure Teal. This looks really nice where it has bubbled and the black soot is showing through.
I'm entering this into The Stampman embossing challenge, and    
The Artistic Stamper Layers challenge.
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your Sunday x
