Making a Splash with Chomas Creations embossing tip

Awhile back I did a post on the difference between the Chomas Creations embossing kit and engraving tip.  I took 2 sheets of white paper and used both tools with the Cricut and the same pattern, then chalked them to see the difference.  Here is that post... difference between embossing and engraving
I already used the sample of paper with the engraving tip, and I still had this piece sitting around from the embossing sample and put it to work on this page! 
Here is the close up of the Chomas Creations embossing kit on white cardstock that was then chalked.

I also used a journaling circle that I have on hand using the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder, you can see that tutorial here... journaling circle

I needed a good title for this page, and used My Cut Search to do just that!  Sometimes you have no clue that something like Sports Mania would have the perfect title like make a splash!  I used some crystal lacquer to cover the title to make it look wet.

Here is the finished layout, along with my little guy making a splash!  The papers are all Quick Quotes, perfect summer colors!

Love the "tiled" look after it's been embossed and chalked! Too cool!
