Sweet Stamps- Embossing

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Embossing.
  I had so much fun- The DT all received some of the new Stencils just released from Sweet Stamps- did I say last week how spoiled we are???
  HERE is a link to the new line of Stencils for sale at Sweet Stamps- and all are made in the USA : )
 I used Distress Inks on the background- drying the paper before each application I added the red last and it does not seem too visible. I placed the stencil over the background and added Tumbled Blue Distress Ink.
  I used Globecraft and Piccolo enamel embossing powder on the sentiment strip and on the dragonfly. The fabulous shimmer does not show up well in the picture- it is wonderful IRL. I added Wink of Stella to the top of her shirt and to the flower in her hair for a touch more sparkle.

Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store:

We have a weekly challenge and a monthly technique challenge. The monthly challenge 8/15-9/14 is Double Side Step Card. Our winners are chosen by and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your entry will count x's 2!

She's lovely Shelly - love the background , it is really subtle, but intricate, and the purple you have used for the dress and tag is the perfect foil to it.

What a fabulous card you've created here! I love how it is both fun and elegant at the same time. I can totally see how it fits into our "bold" theme because both the image and the colors stand out so beautifully. I also really like the lovely background and how its pattern looks with the central image. You did a wonderful job and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

A really cute card and guess what, you were randomly chosen as winner at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.
I probably won't get a chance to put you in my winner spot until tomorrow though. Busy night!
