DV 111 Embossing, Wet or Dry

Our challenge at Dream Valley this time around is embossing, and this can be wet or dry, or even a combination of both. We are sponsored by Crafts and Me and I have used one of their gorgeous stamps for my card, called Birthday Girl. This also comes as a digi but I have the rubber stamp. We are also sponsored by The Hobby House.

111 Embossing

I coloured her with my copics, adding some glitter highlights to her balloons, and the lacey areas of her outfit, plus a little on the flower and lollipop on her gifts.

The image below shows the glitter on the image, which was called Sprinkled Sugar a Stickles one, but when it was wet it just looked like dimensional glue, not until it dried can you see it actually looks like grains of sugar. Sorry for the quality of the pic, but it was difficult to get the right angle to show the glitter properly.

111 Glitter Close Up

My embossing is a Marianne Designables Embossing and Diecutting folder, no DS0908, and I embossed it onto a light teal from a DCWV mat stack of their Jewelled Colours. I have the matching 12” stack to this, but irritatingly there are a lot of colours in the mat stack that are NOT in the 12” stack! Bad form, as it’s difficult to utilise both when they are so mismatched in colour!

I matted the embossed paper onto another sheet from the same mat stack in bright pink, and also diecut the word smile with a Penny Black die.

I glittered around the edge of the pink layer with Ice Stickles.
