The great theme at My Time to Craft Challenge this week is Emboss,emboss,emboss and I have been itching to get some ideas down on to paper/card for this challenge. The trouble was, the embossing powders I had ordered to do the design I had in mind, still hadn't arrived when the deadline approached ! Panic ? Me ? Never ! haha!! As it happened I went to a local Papercraft Show on Sunday and although I was worried about not being at home and actually crafting, I definitely wanted to go because we don't have many shows in my part of the world and I didn't want to miss it. I needn't have worried because I definitely came away with lots of inspiration and a few little purchases including a super embossing folder that I used to make this little card :
The embossing folder is called Sycamore and it's by Craft Concepts - I love it and it was reduced (even better ) !! It embossed cleanly and with good depth so I decided to try to bring out the image even further with a little chalking. I used a creamy lemon colour which I thought coordinated well with the base card I had used.
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges :
1.Craft Your Days Away Challenge 12 - LOVE
2.Everybody Art Challenge 126 - My favourite thing (Buttons)
3.Craft Your Passion Challenge 42 - Use 2 Patterned Papers
