A 21st birthday card for my husband's cousin. The Allsorts challenge this week is to use Embossing, so I dusted off my light box and got out a couple of brass stencils and my chalks. The stamps for the backgrounds are by Dawn Bibby - from her Woodland Deer and Woodland Rabbits clear stamps set. The main image is a wooden stamp that came as part of a collection from QVC a few years ago, it was coloured using promarkers - which i wish i had bought sooner . Added a small key from my stash - she is 21 after all.
Challenges entered
Allsorts - Embossing
Paper Sundaes Challenge - A birthday card
The Crafty Pad - Embossing
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Monochromatic and wings
Took ages doing this, made a huge mess as usual, (big sigh), my creation passed the mantle piece test (my own Quality control check) but still doesn't quite work in the photo, which is disappointing. But i had fun - and didn't eat any chocolate, so that's a bonus.
