Gooooooooooooooood Morning crafty peeps! Happy Sunday to you all, I do hope the sun is shining wherever you are.....it is here, Yay!!
Lots of wonderful entries last week over at THE CRAFTY PAD, thank you so much for playing along. Don't forget to pop over and see if you are a winner or made it into our top 3!
This week, we want to see...
EMBOSSING (HEAT OR DRY)
I have created a row of 3 beach huts (I just removed the seagull and beach ball from 2 of them so it didn't look weird!) I coloured them of course with Promarkers and edged with blue ink. The DP reminded me of deckchair fabric!
I sponged pale blue ink as a background and gave the beach a kind of shingle effect.
Onto the embossing.....I wanted to gold emboss using my powder and heat gun....BUT....I couldn't find the embossing powder ANYWHERE, sooooo, I went with dry embossing using one of my Cuttlebug folders....dots. Then I rubbed ink over the embossed dots to accentuate them.
I used the senti where the sun would be, and mounted it onto a piece of yellow embossed card.
I had some anchor charms in my stash which suited the theme, so I tied on some garden twine (I reckon it suited the look of the card,) and secured the charm with a brad.
As always, the rest of the DT have excelled themselves, so don't forget to check out their work when you enter your creation over at THE CRAFTY PAD this week!
