It's time for a great NEW challenge at "Fairy Fun Fridays"!!
Our hostess for the next couple weeks is Dionne and she wants us to try and use embossing in a different way! So our theme for the next couple of weeks is "Wet Embossing" which is another way to say (heat Embossing)!!
Here is what I came up with and a little inspiration to get you started...
I have to admit, I'm usually not very good at embossing, so the only embossing I ever do is usually just the sentiments on my card. So for my card this week, I tried something new and used a background foliage stamp from "Stampendous" to stamp and emboss the 4 panels in the back! I also stamped and embossed the sentiment right onto the image...which was very brave of me I might add....lol! I will definitely try this again in the future, because I loved the way it turned out and I didn't mess up even once! So thanks to my fellow teamy Dionne for making me try something new!! :D
I thought it would also look cool to pop up the embossed panels and image too! The image I used for my card is Roberta's gorgeous "Poppies" which can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop HERE!
I tried my best to really capture the detail of the embossing on both the panels and the sentiment. The sentiment is from "Paper Trey Ink"...I love their gorgeous sentiments! I have a nice little collection started!!
I went with a simple inside...
