Phindy's Challenge #54 theme - embossing
Hi, and my card today features Phindy's 'Tasty Flakes' and I set her in a circular scene of snow laden skies and crisp fallen snow. I coloured her & her background with Promarkers, paper piecing her complete matching ensemble. The theme of this week's challenge at Phindy's Place is to use some form of embossing on your card or project. I couldn't resist doing both dry & wet embossing for this my first Christmas card of the year.
Having created my own backing paper by colouring white card to resemble something like heavy snow clouds with my Promarkers, I then popped this card into an embossing folder to create the dotty background to represent falling snow. The lower half of the card is torn white card with embossed edges using Heat It Up's Snowflake & Clear embossing powders for sparkling & glistening snow drifts. I then edged around various torn edges with paint to give the idea of tiny snow drifts including one around the sentiment which is one from Paulette at TLC. In case anyone is interested, the totally gorgeous ribbon with the tiny beads on is from Fantastic Ribbons.
We would love it if you could join in with us this week, and don't forget, if you use one of Phindy's images to play along with us to enter your card into the challenge twice to double your chances of winning.
Until next time.
