Crafty Gals Corner - Emboss It! (8/24/16)

Hello, Crafters! Today marks another new week for the Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! This week the challenge is Emboss IT!
Our sponsor this week is:
Nikki Burnette

So, for my project this week, I chose the digital Shelby V.2.  Of course, as always, I always use Prismacolors and printed my image out onto white cardstock. Before I mounted her onto a mat, I took a piece of plain white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shots machine to emboss. Then I took my Versamark pad and rubbed it all over that mat and put Ranger Pale Gold embossing powder on it, shook off the excess, and heated it up with my heat gun. So, I had 2 embossing techniques on that mat. I then placed it onto a blue vellum-like paper I got from Paper Temptress. I stamped the sentiment on the blue paper with Versamark and used Zing Copper embossing powder on it. That was placed onto some orange cardstock I had in my stash. (Before I forget, I did distress all the edges except for the blue paper with TH Rusty Hinge distress ink. I also distressed the little flowers.) I also used clear embossing powder on the fairy wings and the shell of the snail (more embossing!). Wink of Stella clear was used to give a little shine onto her lips, shoes, clothes....I embellished the card with a large bow, large flower on top of a die cut, pearls, lace, and tiny roses. Here is my completed card:

I know this is a large photo, but I wanted to be sure you see her eyes and the bits of shine on this card. I hope you join us for the challenges this week! Lots of fun and there are prizes!

Now onto my 2nd project. This project is from The Paper Shelter and my image is Cirque. Be sure to check out this website can get colored and uncolored images, plus the paper! I had a lot of fun with her! So, I printed out both the colored background and the colored image, cut her out, placed her on top of the background after I had embossed it, placed it on top of orange cardstock, distressed both the background and the orange cardstock, added distressed tiny roses, Diamond Glass Glitter from Reneabouquets, rhinestones, and pearl drops. It was so fun and easy to do! 
Again, be sure to enter into our challenge this week. And have a lot of fun with it! We love seeing all the talent out there!
