Today's post is a combination of the bloggers challenge emboss challenge and the MFT sketch challenge.
For bloggers challenge fit was titled 'emboss me.' I love embossing so I decided to do two types of embossing on my card. The first type of emboss technique I learned was heat embossing. So my sentiment is done this way. To get this result, stamp your image on Versamark instead of ink. Then sprinkle clear embossing powder on tip and then use a heat gun until the whole thing gets a nice clear glow. Don't put heat on too long. I've burned a card before!
My second emboss technique is using my cuttlebug. Can you see that there are letters on the green paper? I cut my mat layer out and then ran it through the cuttlebug with the embossing folder (PTI) and it makes an impression. It adds a little texture and interest.
The main focal image is made with a new MFT dienamics die. It has three images and it's so fun and easy to mix and match papers to get the right effect.
The papers are from SU and October Afternoon. SU retired soft sky and SU old olive. The ribbon is also SU. The string bow and ribbon just finish it off (and make it match the MFT sketch challenge.)
