Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 14 - Embossing

Hi everyone, a card today for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 14 and this week the dare is to use embossing on your project. Hope you can join us this week.

I've used my new Butterfly Catcher image, hopefully available next week and I've coloured her with pencils and added some Star Dust Stickles. I've dry embossed some lines on the edges of the image and then inked around with a blue chalk ink pad before mounting with dimension tape on another piece of white card. The background piece is dry embossed again in a criss cross grid and I've also stamped and embossed down the right side of the panel using versamark ink and holographic embossing powder. It has a lovely shimmer but I wasn't able to catch it in this photo. TFL. Chris x
