Hello Friend

It is time for Scrapy Land challenge #2 and the challenge for the time is about Heat Embossing. The challenge starts today and ends Sept 30. I used one of ATC's flourish stamps and with VersaMark watermark stamp pad I embossed the background of the card and used white embossing power and heat set the embossing power and used distress ink color scattered straw and sponged around to add a small amount of color.

Look at all the brands of dies that Scrapy Land sells:
    The card size is 5" by 7", That is a different size for me to use but the vase and flowers turned out rather tall but that size worked just right. The paper came from my scraps. The ribbon is from stampin up color marina mist.
The dies cuts I used are: Spellbinders in'spire in-037, celebration two, elegant ovals, filigree vase and the blue bells and lily of the valley.
    Here is the inside of the card. Nothing fancy. The corners I used creative memories corner punch and add a blue gem to each corner.
Here is the close up of the vase with the flowers. I think it turned out so pretty and love the blue bells. I added some ice sparkle color mint ice and it made the blue bells just sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Love to have you join us.

Welcome to all my friend, have some thing a little different to share with you today.
My card is 6" by 6". The paper I used is from DCWV it is the black and White stack. My images is from digistamp4joy and it is called Vintage Couture. I cut out my image and used 1inch Score tape on the image and sprinkled it down with white glitter all over the dress. Used a brayer and went over and over the dress tell I felt it was burnished enough and felt that the glitter was not going to come off. I used a Copic Multiliner sp black sizes 0.3 and 0.05 pens and went over the dress to bring out the black a little more.
