DV #176 Dry Embossing

Our challenge at Dream Valley today is Dry Embossing. We are sponsored by Cute As A Button and I have used one of their images to create my card, Ballerina.

176 Dry Embossing 01
I coloured her in with copics, and printed the skirt part of her tutu onto patterned paper from Nitwits and then paper pieced it onto the image. The die cut is from Spellbinders.

The embossed background I have had since forever!!! It’s one of those craft supplies I just had to have, before embossing folders were so prevalent and die cutting machines, and came in a pad from Craftwork Cards. This particular sheet was a full 8” sheet, but the pad also contained embossed card that was precut in various lovely shapes.

I inked over it with Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxides. The two ribbons came from my stash, as did the gems and glitter enamel dots.

A slightly darker version of the picture. I really need a new camera, or better eyes, because I am struggling to get decent pics at the moment.
