Happy New Year and ABC E is for ……..

Good morning everyone. Happy New Year. I hope you haven’t woken up with thick heads and sore stomachs!

We have a brand new challenge for you over at ABC today, E for Embossing, and we are sponsored by Stamp and Create with a $25 voucher and The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop with a lovely prize of ribbons, charms and pins.

ABC E Embossing

My card was made with a stamp very generously sent to my by a friend as it was a freebie on the latest Creativity magazine from Docrafts and it was not something she could see herself using. I stamped and embossed the art deco lady and also the four small corner motifs in gold detail powder and then coloured each of them with my copic pens. All the other gold rings are from the Loopy die from Memory Box. The paper is from Joycrafts’ Vintage pad 2, and the top layer I put through my BS with an embossing folder and then went over the top with some of those metallic rub-ons, which I must have had in my stash for years and not used, to accentuate the embossed area left by the folder. (by the way be careful when using those, I forgot to scrub my hands and couldn’t work out why everything I touched was dirty!) The mats are gold satin mirri, and the sentiment was created on my pc.
