[DYSU] Challenge #95 - Embossing


Good morning, DYSU-ers! I've sick and under the weather. I had a great Saturday and then it all went downhill from there. Spend a few days working from my bed and home desk, but there is no rest for the wicked.

Anyways, here at DYSU we're challenging you with Embossing - Heat & Dry. I got a wonderful Robyn's Fetish image. Isn't this teapot just divine?

No Matter What I Have To Do...
Stamps: (Afternoon Tea Sentiments) Waltzingmouse Stamps; (Teapot) Robyn's Fetish
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Rustic Cream) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko; (Jenni Bowlin - No. 4 Lemon Drops) Ranger;
Embellishments: (Vellum) Papertrey Ink; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (A2 Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Fleur De Lis) Provocraft; (Crochet Trim) Waltzingmouse Stamps; (Nestabilities - Labels Eighteen) Spellbinders


I embossed a piece of vellum by inking up the embossing folder with some Lemon Drops. It gave it  a nice letter press impression. The teapot is colored in some cream for the aged porcelain, and some purple to make it pop. I used a piece of gorgeous lace trim from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Here a close up...

No Matter What I Have To Do...

I love this Ren-Yi, the lace looks like an old fashioned doily! The vellum ebossed background is stunning, this is a truly beautiful creation! I love the vintage vibe from this!

Hey! FAB card, love the dry embossing, something I rarely do and you have used an ink technique I've never tried - you have inspired me to give it a go! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful creation.

I hope you feel better soon! It's practically going around blogland, that cold :) It was a bad one.
Love how you used that folder - I have it & have never used it!
