SSC Challenge ~ embossing and Wee Memories Summertime.


It's SSC challenge time again... This week our challenge to you is ~ embossing!  Heat embossing, dry embossing, emboss resist - there are literally dozens of ways to enter this challenge!  Come join us here.

this month's fabulous sponsor  ~

Lisa kindly provided us with some wonderful stamps and I got to use two fabulous sets...  “It's a Shore Thing” and “Little Frieda goes to the Sea Shore”.

SSC July Challenge ~ Embossing.


My embossing was done with my ScorPal around the outside edges of the card.  The PP is a digital download which I re-coloured in PSE8.  I stamped the sand from "It's a Shore Thing" with some Versacolour ink and used a dauber to colour it.  Added distress ink for the sea/sky.  The sentiment and the sea gull are also from the same set.   I stamped Little Frieda onto white card and used Copics to colour it and cut it out.    This was a very fun card to make.
I am entering it into Wee Memories challenge  ~ Summer. 

Thanks for visiting... and do join us over on the SSC blog.  You could win some lovely stamps from The Crafter's Meow.

Cheers

Dawn
