Dry embossing

Hi folks, it's time for another challenge over at the Artistic Inspirations challenge blog. The theme this week is dry embossing. I have made two cards this time, although one was from a few weeks ago, as I gave it to my Father-in-law for Father's Day. I used an image called 'Feet up and a cuppa' which is very apt for him, even the wild hair and big nose seems to suit him quite well! He laughed when he opened the card, which was quite fortunate, as he did at least see the funny side.

Anyway, I coloured  my card with pencils, and then used a houndstooth embossing folder to create a textured background. I used a sentiment from Visible Image. Lots of coloured matting picks out the colours from my image.

The second image is called 'Veedub', and I wanted to create a girly card with this image. I printed the image onto to some retro patterned paper that I had been hoarding in my stash for ages, and decoupaged it onto another image that I had coloured with pencils. I then added another coloured layer for the bumper. I punched some flowers which I then embossed with a dotty embossing folder, and attaced them together with brightly coloured brads. I also added a computer generated sentiment using a retro style font, which was a free download.

Our sponsor this week is Dr Digi who is offering the winner 1 digital image of their choice.

So please hop over to the challenge blog and see what my team mates have made for your inspiration, and have a go at entering the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Two very different cards but both equally good. Cute car!

Two great cards Judith, like Val says very different. I love the girly card, and the feet up and cuppa too, it's the sort I would send to my Father-in-law (he loves his cuppa).

Very different these two but I like your imaginative use of patterned paper in the second & love that houndstooth pattern in the first.
