A new to me challenge blog that I came across from Buddy Bonnie’s entries so I decided to give it a whirl. What a great idea to be inspired and challenged to use all of those embossing folders that are in my stash. This challenge is an Anything Goes Embossing with a Twist of Pink. I wanted to make my embossed panel the star of the card so I used a SimonSaysStamp 3D Kaleidoscope embossing folder that is very detailed. I die cut a piece of heavy weight pink cardstock then lightly sprayed it with water and ran it through my Big Shot. The detail is pretty awesome. I did CASE a card I saw on the Facebook group Share Handmade Kindness but unfortunately I didn’t notate the maker to give credit. From there I constructed and deconstructed what to do next multiple times adding a black layer then removing it, trying to get a clean heat embossed sentiment and on and on. So I settled with a simple Script Hello die from SSS, stamped “there” from Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Floral set and a Tim Holtz Sizzix Garden Greens leaf that was previously cut out but not used. Without that black layer, the card seemed to have been missing something so I lightly stenciled pink on a Fun Stampers Journey Splash Zone stencil. Hard to see but it adds a little background detail….well, at least to me.
Thanks Darlene and Diane for another fun challenge blog.
