The Crafting Cafe

Hi Everyone
Just popping by today to share some inspirationn for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  The theme for our February challenge is:
Embossing
This can be dry or heat embossing, we just want to see some embossing.
Our wonderful sponsor for February is WOW Embossing Powders who are offering the winner 6 pots of embossing powder.  What a fab prize.

Here is my inspiration project.


I used a stamp set from Imagination Crafts and white WOW embossing powder for my card.  The main image was stamped onto watercolour card using versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I then coloured the image using distress inks.  The embossing acts as a resist for the distress ink.  The background and sentiment were done using the same technique with the mini stamps from the stamp set.   I matted the image and background onto coredinations cardstock and simply added a little ribbon bow and pearl embellishment.

Thanks for popping by and you still have until the end of the month to enter the challenge.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe to submit your entry.  Look our for more inspiration from the design team during the rest of the month.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Lisa B - Resist techniques
Graph'It - Floral/Love
Craftyhands - Heat/Dry embossed background
Stampin for the Weekend - Flower power
Scribble and Scrap - Anything goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes
