Kaboodle Doodles Challenge # 15

This week on the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog......

"This week the challenge is all about Embossing, any type of embossing, use your embossing powders and heat tool, or your cuttlebug and collection of folders, your light box and embossing tools - anything you like"

This is the card I made this week :

I used Kaboodle Doodles Green Papers Kit and also a piece of Papermania green Christmas paper.

A piece of bronze coloured Core'dinations card which I embossed with the script embossing folder on the Cuttlebug and then I sanded it to distress it. It also makes the embossing stand out too.

The image is a Papermania stamp which I triple embossed (my first time !) and I used silver, gold and silver pearl embossing powders. I really enjoyed doing this although I was a little worried I would end up with the stamp stuck in the embossing powder or a melted stamp ! I then rubbed some Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink into the embossing and "polished it" which gave it a distressed look and also made the image stand out a little more. I mounted it onto some bronze shiny card.

The sentiment is a Woodware clear stamp which I stamped in Versafine Olympia Green and distressed with distress inks (old paper and walnut stain) and also mounted this onto some bronze shiny card.

The rainbow drops and ribbon are from my stash.

I loved making this card, such a challenge and something I had never tried before.

I am looking forward to seeing your embossed creations !

Hope you all have a good week and I hope the end is nearly in sight for all those Christmas cards (says she who hasn't even written one yet !!).
