Embossing at Crafts and Me

******Do you fancy a crafty get away? I am arranging one for October this year and there are still spaces. Click HERE for details******

It is the time of the week when we at Crafts and Me challenges set you a new challenge and this week we want you to do some embossing.

The prize this week is from Crafts and Me

For my card I have used the stunning Genevieve. I have coloured her with promarkers then inked all round the edge of the picture quite roughly before covering it in gold embossing powder. I have not tried that effect before and I quite like it. I have then also used some dry embossed gold card across the card and stamped the heart boarders at the top and the bottom with a Marianne D stamp from the bear sentiments stamp set (SF1113).

Pro and flex markers I used are:
Skin: Saffron,Vanilla & Ivory
Hair: Carmine, Rose pink, Baby pink
Gloves, eyes and wings: Cool Grey 5, Egyptian blue, Cyan, Celestial blue

I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Fashionable stamping - Embossing
Let's ink it up - Distressing
Crafty Cradmakers - Fantasy
Kaboodledoodle - Embossing
Love to create - Anything Goes

Wow, what a stunning image! The effect of the embossing powder around the edges makes it look like it is melting into the background...a fantastic technique!
Thankyou for joining in on our embossing challenge this fortnight.
