Time for a new spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers, and this fortnight our spotlight is on 'dry embossing'. Easy peasy really, and a great chance to get those embossing folders out, or maybe you've got an unloved light box that you could dust off :o)
I decided that instead of using an image as the main focus, I'd use this cuttlebug owl embossing folder... bought quite a while ago and it's been sat in it's packaging ever since - I'm always doing this! I spot some 'must-have', buy it and either use it once or never use it, and it sits there making me feel guilty... perhaps I'll make a few of these in different colours and then I won't feel so bad!
Anyway... it's a fairly quick card - I just embossed the owl onto coredinations cardstock, then sanded it back and roughed up all the cardstock edges a bit with the sanding block. The ribbon, pearls and yellow/ orange cardstock are all from my stash.
I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm Lisa, and I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, with my husband Pav and our 2 boys Morgan (10) and Dexter (5yrs). We also had another son, Harvey, who sadly was stillborn in Feb 2007. I've always lived in Sheffield, but my husband is from Poland.
I'm completely obsessed with cardmaking - I think I even dream cards!
Thank you to anyone who follows me, and if you visit my blog please leave a comment if you have time - then I can come and visit you :o)
