Emboss It

Hello there! Over at The Paper Shelter we have a brand new challenge starting.  The theme this week is Emboss It so we want to see either dry embossing or wet embossing - I have used both on my card:

Now this cutie is called Exotic Enchantment and lives here at The Paper Shelter. I coloured her with my Copics and cut her out with Dienamics Oval Stax before matting her on Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  Around the edge I sprinkled some Frantage and heat set it.  The paper is from Nitwits 'Cottage Charm' and card stock from Paper Mill.  I embossed the card stock with Couture Creations 'Tied Together' and used a Viva Decor Pen to add some pearls.  The sentiment is LOTV and the floral spray is a die from Joanna Sheen 'Daisy Bouquet' to which I added more Viva Decor.

As usual there is a fabulous prize on offer:

make sure you use a Paper Shelter image to be in with a chance to win $30 voucher to the shop.  If you use another image then your prize will be 3 images.

At the moment we are having a DT call on too:

have a look at all the details over on the blog here.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cuttlebug Mania - Anything Embossed
Craft Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with a handmade bow
Fitztown - Fantasy
Incy Wincy - All Things Girly
Melonheadz - Two or more Dies

Thank you so much for looking today and your lovely comments. Take care xx
