AAA new DTThis week’s Challenge#47 is Spectacular Embossing.

Here’s my card:

IMG_0714cropsquareΒ  I am truly “Giving Thanks” to the ladies at AAA Cards for inviting me to be part of their team! I had fun with this card and used a couple of my favorite techniques, sponging/ink-blending and emboss resist. I learned these techniques from Laura Bassen in her “Craftsy” class.

After stamping my image in VersaMark and heat embossing with clear embossing powder, I did some ink blending on top of the butterfly. I really enjoy using this stamp! The sentiment if from PTI’s Scripted stamp set. I highly recommend this set.

  1. This is so bright and colorful…I love how it stood well in its equally gorgeous garden background. We are blessed that you joined our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. Make sure you drop by again this week to link your family-friendly projects with us. Leaving you with God’s Word in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 and it says, “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. ”

    God bless always,

  3. I wondered how you did this when I saw the thumbnail. The background is superb and the embossed butterfly is really looking super. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday, in our 198th challenge.
    Blessings and Hugs, Carole
