Embossing

Hello everyone. I have my DT card today for

As You Like It Challenge where the theme is 

Embossing...wet or dry? (Don't forget to tell us why)

 My "go to" type has to be dry, in the form of embossing folders. I still can't quite get over the transformation that happens to a plain piece of card by squishing it between a plastic folder...incredible!!  



Our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments and I chose to use a rubber stamp from the Warm Summer Days set that I coloured with my Promarkers to compliment the freebie papers. Both the sentiment and the greeting embossing folders were free with magazines and the ribbon from my stash.



I glittered up the sweet little blooms with stardust stickles and used a Versamark embossing pen and heat embossed clear powder to give an enamel effect to the watering can







                                                                    Hope you will come along and have a play.

I am entering these challenges

Paper creators challenge #37 - Flowers
Penny Black and More April Challenge - Birthdays
Creatalicious challenges #74 - Embossing

It's magic! And I especially love how you used the embossing in the aperture and for the greeting - makes a nice change from just using an embossed layer as a whole background :-)
Your card is so pretty and the shiny/sparkly detailing on your image is fab!

Big hugs, Kat xx

MaryH said...

Wonderful design element to add the window shape embossed insert. I really like that idea. So pretty with your watercan of lovely posies. Also liked the idea of using the EP over the coloring, as it really did look enameled. The background DP was perfect for this image ...very springlike. Hope you didn't get wet in the showers. Makes the grass green I'll bet. Imagine it is lovely in your area now. TFS & Hugs
