TAG IT ON #35 - Emboss it!

Just scraping in with this one hahaha!!!

The theme for this weeks tag from TAG IT ON CHALLENGES is to emboss!  Can be any type of embossing as long as there is still a real stamp in there somewhere.  For my piece I chose to use my birdy cuttlebug folder.  I painted & stamped the background first though.  The stamps were a freebie from a mag a while ago!  Once embossed I gently rubbed over the raised section with some more distress inks and added a bit of stickles.

You can still join in with this weeks if you're quick as there is a new one out tomorrow!  HUGS XXX

Love it Karen. The grass and the flowers look great together and I like the way you have cut round the flowers to form the lefthand edge. :)

I adore these stamps and bought the mag just to get them.
You've used them beautifully!
The birdie sparkles perfectly in the dreamy background. :-)

Dulcie Jackson designed them and she owns Wild Rose Studio.
Funnily enough I have just read a feature about her in Quick cards magazine that I bought yesterday as a reward to myself for being so wonderful *cough*
