A Gem of a Challenge - Emboss It

Hi Everyone
Yippee, it's Saturday and two whole days without work.  I do love weekends.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge.  Our theme for this week (chosen by me) is:
Emboss It
Just use embossing somewhere on your project.  This could be dry embossing or heat embossing, whatever you want.

Our prize for the winner is....
2 individual digi images
(no sets, personalised watermarks, sentiment sets)
of the winners choice from Pink Gem Designs.

I used the image Andy with Guitar for my project.  I used the pre-coloured image which I find so useful for quick cards.  For the background I used a stencil of the guitar and music notes.  I used a resist technique using heat embossing and distress inks.  The background was then matted onto some black card an patterned paper from my stash.  I did lightly ink the edges of the patterned paper.   

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.  For more inspiration from my fab teamies just pop over to AGOAC.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Scrapbooking Queen - Anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Masculine
Lisa B - Masculine
OSAAT - Anything goes
Robyns Fetish - Use a digi
Digi Darlas - Make it masculine
Love to Create - Fathers Day/Special guy

You've made such a fabulous background for this guitar playing boy! And I love the fact that you've used pink tones - you made me realize that pink can actually be a great color for masculine cards as well!
