SPEEDY THE CAT CHALLENGE # 69

EMBOSS IT- That’s Linda’s challenge to us

Aug 20-embossing

Isn’t this a gorgeous butterfly?  It comes from the Butterflies and Wisteria set that was released last week.  Embossing, that’s fun.  I think I emboss something on ever card.  This time I used dry embossing with the Cuttlebug folder I used for the back ground, I embossed the die cut also, and then I used Versamark black pad and sparkling black embossing powder for the butterfly.   The little leaf charms from Mark’s Finest Papers they were a brown metal and I used my copics to color them.  Didn’t that turn our great? 

Faith showed us how to do that with this tutorial.  Are you signed up with Speedy TV yet?  If not, join us, it’s fun, you learn lots and there’s a whole lot of stamping friends to get acquainted with.   Remember you get your name in the drawing twice for the Speedy Cat challenge when you use stamps from MFP.

  4. Look at you, changing metals! That's so cool; I just thought those little leaf charms were always green. :) I clicked on your card pic so I could see the embossing better, and I like the theme of leaves you used there, too. ANd, yes, I love that new Wisteria set so much!!
