CACB #17 - Emboss it ! - DT card

The challenge this fortnight over at Crafty Ann's  is Emboss it!
You can use dry or heat embossing, or even both on your project.

I chose to use two of my CB embossing folders, Swiss Dots and the Script, both on plain paper and lightly coloured with my favourite Creamy brown ColorBox chalk inkpad
I chose two of the papers from Ann's new Mottled Stone collection. These are so lovely and look as though they have taken ages to do with distress inks.
The main BP is from Collection 1 - such a useful colour for my favourite vintage look.
Ann's short petal flowers were printed on to this lovely turqoise-y colour which is from Collection 4.
The butterfly is a QuicKutz 2 part die cut from the same paper and the edges are 'sparkled' with glitter glue.
The centres of the flowers are glitter glued too.

I bought the lovely lace in Sheringham at the weekend.

I used the current sketch at Sketch and Stash #37 and my new stash is Ann's mottled stone paper and lace from my weekend away.
Allsorts #56 - Lace and/or buttons
Caardvarks  - June challenge is embossing
Lal la Land #43 - is also embossing, although I don't have a La La Land stamp to use :-(

I hope you will be able to join us for this challenge. We all look forward to seeing your creations.

Thank you for stopping by :-)

This is just glorious Irene - and I'm so pleased that you like the mottled stone collections. In fact I'll let you into a little were the inspiration for collection 1! I've always loved how you do the vintage style and as I was creating the papers, I could see you using them but didn't want to tell you in case you felt obliged to use them. :oD
