CCM 122 Make an Impression

It’s a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers today and we would like to see you Make an Impression, or in other words emboss something! Dry embossing only please, not stamped and embossed with powder.

122 Embossing 1

I started with an image from Fitztown from their Fae range and coloured her with Copics and Prisma pencils for highlights. I also added a little glamour dust to areas of her wings and the hem of her dress.

122 Embossing Image

My background is an embossing folder. After embossing it I highlighted the paisley’s with a sakura stardust pen, to match the gorgeous purple mirri card surrounding the background, and creating the mat and the sentiment. The diecuts are from Joycraft (the background mat) and Britannia (the sentiment), Marianne, the diecuts in the floral corner. The flowers, feathers and curling ribbon were all in my stash.
