Craft Barn Calendar Challenge - Dry embossing

Hi everyone! Our July pages for the Craft Barn Calendar challenge are on the Craft Barn Blog this week and our theme for the week is dry embossing. I've done a step by step of how I did the embossed, inked effect which you'll find over on the blog.

To keep with my trees and leaves theme I've used a lovely woodgrain embossing folder which makes a gorgeous background. There's lots of inspiration from my DT friends all week and the next challenge starts on Saturday if you're joining us in making your own calendar. 

Enjoy your day.

Arte puro, me encanta, lo tendré en cuenta. A veces tengo material pero no se por donde empezar, viendo estas preciosidades algo sacaré.

Just fabulous! I love the embossing/inking effect. The leaves and the bird with the wood background is really great. I can't help but study the card so I can find all the wonderful elements.

Muchas gracias, Chris, sabiendo que estas tan ocupada te agradezco doblemente tu visita.
Con estos desafios, a ver si para Navidad tengo las tarjetas para mi familia y amigos, he empezado tarde, pero así tendré algunas, mejor o peor pero se las daré.
Besitos, buen fin de semana.
