Sweet Pea Stampers - Embossing

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well today? Things are better here with me, all back to normal. D no1 still having tummy troubles though. I'm sure she has the same IBS as me, bit early though as she is only 12, but her symptoms are soooo similar to mine. Either that or it's 'that time' for her body to change into womanhood (oh dear!)

Anyroadup, 'tis time for a new challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers, and for this fortnight we are all about 'Embossing'. You can use whatever embossing technique you like, I chose the simplest, and ran a piece of patterned dp through the big shot with a swirly folder.

The stamp I used is Ching Chou Kuik's 'Midnight Waiting' coloured with watercolour pencils. Brads and ribbon bits from the stash. The sentiment is computer generated and raised on a large foam pad. I have deliberately kept from using loads of layers on this one, as I am hoping to sell it at a Craft Fair next week. People don't seem to like paying extra for posting these days, which is a shame as there are some lovely cards out there.

Be sure to pop by the rest of the DT at Sweet Pea Stampers folks! Some marvelous creations for you to oggle this time!! See you there!

A few challenges I am entering:
Allsorts - Gold, Cream with hint of Red
C.R.A.F.T. - Embossing
