Rainbow Lady's Challenge 168 - Let's Emboss It!

Ok, I have taken another photo this morning and replaced it. It was driving me mad! I don't know why I posted it last night at all. Think I was tired and not thinking straight?
The challenge this week set by Rainbow Lady is to do some embossing. I had a play this afternoon with a Creative Expressions embossing folder, some Wow embossing powder in a lovely shade of blue and a Papermania backing paper, and this is what I came up with.

Once I had embossing the white card, I then gentle shaded the raised parts with blue DI, then set about cutting out all the little squares in the trellis. I laid that over the bp. Then I cut out a frame using nesties, and laid that over the top, first sandwiching some spotty blue ribbon across the panel. I added a little blue bow to one side.

I then stamped and embossed two large irises and one small iris and coloured them with prismacolour pencils before cutting them out. The second large one I only wanted the three top petals for layering. I stuck the flowers down using glue gel.

So there you have it.

Better get going. I hadn't noticed the time, and we haven't eaten yet - yikes!!! What am I like. 

Bye for now. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Such a lovely feminine card. Impressed by your patience cutting out all the holes. It is hopeless trying the take a photo when it is so dark and grey outside. Flash often bleaches them out.
