Glitterbabe meets Elephantastic!


This week at Glitterbabes we are priviliged to be sponsored by Elephantastic, who grasciously allowed us one of their images "Sketchy Snowman" to play with. Isn't he just gorgeous!!!

The theme this week is EMBOSSING , your choice which variety, dry, heat, by machine or by hand (or any form I don't know about yet). Just show us that gorgeous texture!!!

I know it's difficult to see(pearlescent white card isn't easy to photograph), but I have embossed wavy lines down the edge of my card using a Keepsake board(by the Glitter Girls, pale green can't remember what it's called). Then I wanted to emboss on the space by the snowman with my cuttle bug folder, but because of the position it wouldn't fit in the machine sooooo... and I'm sure someone is going to scream..... I trapped the card in the folder(snowflake christmas tree) where I wanted the embossing, and rubbed over it with my bone folder. And it worked, though I am not advising it as it may damage the folder if this is done on a regular basis!!

Some gentle colouring with promarkers, and some large blue bling for bottons, and I'm very pleased with the finished result.:D XXX
I am entering this card for;
