Wet or dry embossing

Hi there!

Today the reminder challenge over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge blog must be Anything Goes – Option : Embossing Wet or Dry.

For my card I used Sherri Ann Baldy “Winged one Cynthia”. You can find it by clicking the image title.

Since I don’t have many embossing folders for anything other than Christmas, and no embossing powder at all, I had to go with paper that was already embossed. Luckily I found some of that some time ago in the local supermarket and thought that would be fun to use here.

I’m not good at colouring wings, so I hope you’ll forgive that. I hope to be better one of these days, but I loved colouring the rest of her.

On her legs I tried to use the technique I earned when I coloured my Mindful Me projects and I think they turned out fine.

I used the following Copic markers for the project:

Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Hair: W7, W5 and W3
Eyes: YG67, YG63 and YG03
Dress: YG11 and YG03 (layers)
Jewelry: BG59
Wings: UG11, Y00, BV000, BG000 and R20

There’s not that many colours in this image, and I’ve made it that way on purpose, because I’m experimenting with layering the same colour and see, what darker nuances comes out of it.

As embellishments on the card, I put 3 difference size teal coloured pearls on opposite corners.

Then I tried out a super idea I got from someone (sorry, I forgot the name) whose card I saw in a FB group.  I have a lot of big flowers that I have refrained from using because of their size. This person had used them as a sort of background for her other flower decoration. I had to make a go at it, and I think this turned out well. So now I’ve passed the idea on J. Enjoy experimenting, I certainly do.

I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.

Be Happy Crafting!
