Magical Monday - Deco Flower - Embossing Challenge

Gooood morning! This week's Free Limited Edition digital stamp is Deco Flower by Nina May at There's Magic in the Air. Today's challenge was my idea - so today I challenge you to emboss with this image. While I used my Perfect Medium pen to do heat embossing directly on the image after I colored it, you can emboss any part of your card. Dry embossing will be included as well.....so even scoring for decorative effect would be included ~ sky's the limit so as along as it's embossing... it works!



I've actually used both heat & dry embossing.


Here's a close up of the heat embossing I did.... I colored first, so there wouldn't be any white peeping out. I used Tanzanite PearLustre embossing powder - I jut love the way this stuff melts! and for the yellow I used Sparkle n Sprinkle Dandy Dandelion , which is semi-transparent and has glitter in it ;)

So get on over there and pick up this week's image and join us in the challenge!

Ooh, I am loving the color combo you used on this, and the wonderful combination of heat and dry embossing. It's so fun how your ribbon matches the dry-embossed dots, too. Beautiful card, and thanks for the fun challenge!!
