Inspiration Monday-Embossing (wet or dry)

Monday, good to me.....Monday mornin' was all I hoped it would be....
Are you singing this Mamas and the Papas song now?
? (hee, hee)

It's another round of La-La Land Crafts' I
nspiration Monday. Every Monday we introduce a brand new creative challenge at the La-La Land Crafts Blog.

The challenge this week is Embossing (wet or dry)!

I decided to use this super adorable Faerie Marci. She was so much fun to color up!! I absolutely love this image and I really don't know why I haven't used her sooner! Believe me, she will be popping up on more cards soon. :)

Copics & Chalk:
Skin: E000, R20, chalk
Hair: E25, E33, E02
Clothes: B00, G20, G21, G24, chalk, stickles
Crown: B00, Chalk, stickles

Did you notice her wings?? I cut out the inside parts with a craft knife and glued vellum behind them....LOVE it! They really look a lot like wings now.....definitely worth the effort!

For the embossing challenge, I used two different embossing folders. On the back circle cut with SB Lacey Circles, I used the cherry blossom embossing folder from the 4-set pack called Plum Blossom. On the SB Label 18 panel behind Marci, I embossed it with Swiss Dots. The edges are inked with Old Paper Distress Ink and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The dps came from the CTMH Miracle paper pack. I love how their papers and cardstock all coordinate....makes it a lot easier to put together a card quickly! The dps also have patterns on both sides so you get extra matching capabilities. The white pearls are also from CTMH. The beautiful WOC Guipure Lace started off white and I colored it with B00 so it would coordinate.

Do you see my cool, new flower?! It's made with a new EK Success Punch called Dahlia Petals! I used more CTMH paper from the Miracle pack. I just followed the instructions on the back of the packaging and awesome flower! This CTMH paper is thinner than cardstock so it allowed me to roll the petals into the flower shape pretty easily. I think thick cardstock would be tough to roll so my advice is to stick to the thinner stuff.

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. I raised Marci and the panel behind her on pop-dots.

Well, that's it for me folks! I hope you enjoyed our Inspiration this week. Don't forget that you can play along with us by uploading your creation to the Customer Gallery. If you stopped by, please leave me a comment so I know you were here. I love to read what you all have to say!!

Have a great week and see you all next Monday for another great challenge. Don't forget my fellow DT sisters will have more inspiration for you on Friday on the La-La Land Crafts Blog so be sure to check them out.
