Challenge Week 13

Due September 21 - Embossing

Dry embossing is my all time, absolute FAVORITE technique. I just love the subtly and dimension it adds. So for this challenge, I knew just where to look for inspiration - Lasting Impressions. Their designs, papers and templates are adorable and so fun. So, without further ado...
... say 'Hello' to Witchy Poo.

Do you recognize her nose? It is the petal from the Pick A Petal template... I think I am on a quest to see how many things I can create using that set and template. LOL.

I also dry embossed her eyes, hat band and background paper. But, I can't take all the credit - my design inspiration came from Lasting Impressions' Idea Book #27 - shown here -

It seems that I've developed quite a habit of creating cards that are more paper crafted, rather than stamped. So, that's going to be my self-made challenge next week - to return to the land of rubber!

Supplies:
Stamps: None
Ink: None
C/S: More Mustard, Sahara Sand, Lovely Lilac, Gable Green, Basic Black, Whisper White.
Access: Pick A Petal & Dots Brass Templates, Stylus, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Paper Snips, 1/2" circle punch, Black Marker, Dimensionals

What an adorable witch! I went into a store this past weekend that had wall-to-wall Lasting Impressions, and while I have one or two of their stencils, I had no idea they had so much of a variety. I love the look of your card...stamping or not! Great job with the challenge.
