McMahon Five Thursday and a little embossing fun!

  Thursdays are New Release Days at McMahon Five Designs.  I had fun playing with a Technique Junkies technique called Glimmer Mist Watercoloring and added a Faux Embossing Technique I found over at Betty Bee's Buzz.
Here is a close up of the technique:
  This is Sammy Spaceman by Fairydoodler- it is a digital image and can be found at McMahon Five Designs.
  I made this card using Graphite and Blue Glimmer Mist- the camera makes it look Gold- because of the shimmer.  The Faux Embossing folder technique I found at Betty Bee's Buzz- how cool is that?  I stamped some star images- all SU- on the back of my technique and cut them out.  The DSP is SU (Blueberry Crisp).  The Sentiment is by Create with TLC.  The image is colored with Copic markers.

Challenges for my card:
 Anything Goes Challenge- the letter C (circles and curves on my tags and the earth)
Tip Top Tuesday-Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles-Do it with Digi's
Mark's Finest Paper-embossing
Sweet Something-Try Something New
Alphabet-J is for Journey
