Less is more....embossing

Hello.

This weeks theme from The less is more challenge is ...

....A single layer card with embossing.
I have used the most gorgeous stamps from Flourishes.

Kids play.

They are new in at make the day special and have silhouette images and some lovely sentiments.

stamped the image and heat embossed it with clear powder.

Then using a nesties label i used distress inks to colour the background.

I then used the the same label nestie to emboss around the edge.






Here's a close up.

The one time i want the shine picked up on camera and its not very clear at all lol.

Thanks to so many of you making it to visit me for last weeks challenge.

My dog has been very ill this week so with stays in the vets and me looking after him i haven't got round to many of you.

Will do better this week.

Thanks for looking.

  19. This is such a special card-what a fabulous effect you've achieved.
    I hope your dog is better soon, it is very distressing being separated from an animal especially when it is unwell.
