At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Embossing – either wet or dry.We have the fabulous Cardmadfairy and Simon Says as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!
I’ve used Imogen from Cardmadfairy and coloured her with FlexMarkers.’Cos she’s quite a cute ‘n’ quirky image I thought I’d colour her a little differently in greyscale and highlighting parts of the image with colour.I also decided to make a bit of a quirky card to go with her too.After printing her I used an embossing folder to create a frame around her.I did put it in the ‘wrong’ way round to push the frame out instead of debossing it.I hand cut around it too taking off the swirly pattern that was part of the original design.I chose a few other folders and cut strips then glued them to a plain piece of card before trimming it size and adding the stitches.I took some silver metal corners,dabbed them onto a Versamark pad then coated them in black embossing powder.Whilst I had these supplies out I stamped and embossed the sentiment too.I also added a narrow ribbon.
