Are  you ready?


Theme:  Embossi It!
Stash:  Embossing powder or folder

And you have 1 week to play (till August 18th)

This week our sponsor is:

For this week's challenge, I decided to go a different route with my digi image (again) and chose a digi image called "Pretty Wings 3" by StampArt by Kathryne and also used my digi image from last month - "Bible Verse - Believe" by StampArt by Kathryne, so I could do several types of embossing - dry (with embossing folder) and digital embossing. Digital embossing is similar to regular heat embossing except instead of stamping an image with embossing ink, you print an image or sentiment on paper that dries slowly when ran thru an ink jet printer so you can put embossing power over it and then heat it with a heat gun.  This works AMAZING for sentiments.  I did it with the butterfly, too, because the ink was slow to dry on the heavy weight vellum from PaperTemptress.  (I also did the same with the "Bible Verse - Believe" sentiment which I printed on Iridescent Cryogen Text paper.)  Here's how my card turned out:

Iridescent Crogen paperr (both regular and text weights) by PaperTemptress
twine from The Twinery
black embossing powder from Zing!
misc. gems
swirls embossing folder

I used a swirl embossing folder on Iridescent Crogen paper (regular weight not text weight) from PaperTemptress.  I then used my chalks on it to give it more color and even more shimmer . . . the Iridescent Cryogen paper already has a shimmer to it that is so beautiful and it is now my go-to paper to use when using my Copics because it blends so well.. I made my card base from both Iridescent Crogen paper (regular weight) and Turquoise cardstock from the PopTunes paper pak and I cut the bottom base 4"x6-1/2".  Added some twine and gems and . . .  VOILA!  It was done.

I really wish I could get a better picture of these papers on this card . . . they truly are more beautiful in person.

Remember, you have one (1) week till August 18th to get you projects in.  I can't wait to see what type of embossing you do this time.

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
Edited at 9:53am 8/12/14 - Sorry my post didn't go "LIVE" at the correct time . . . I had it scheduled for 5pm not am. Guess that's what I get when my eyes are tired and I'm not seeing the computer very clearly. :)  Have a GREAT day!!!
