Well hey there Peeps! It’s time again for another fun challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog!
Challenge #12 Who’s the Boss?
Show some embossing on your project. You can use dry embossing or heat embossing. You can use an embossing folder or a stencil. You can emboss with embossing paste or embossing powder. You can even create something with ultra-thick embossing enamel. You probably have some sort of embossing apparatus in your hoard! Pull these embossing tools out and put them to use!
Here’s my take on the challenge:I used my Crafter’s Companion embossing folder to create texture and detail. After rolling through the embosser I inked it to bring out great chevron pattern. I added a sweet sentiment from my Subway Art Sentiment Collage Sheet layered over a die cut frame. Background paper is from Bohemian Bazaar from Graphic 45. I used a rich chocolate brown to anchor the bright colors.
I created this frankenflower by combining parts from many other flowers until I had the size and shape I liked…and colored it all with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I wound a little eyelash yarn through and used a nice glitter on the edge to jazz it up a bit. I inked the Turquoise Diamond Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to coordinate with my frankenflower then finished off with some blingy little gem accents.
