Emboss it....



This week at Lexi's we have a fun and easy challenge "Embossing". For my card I used Tessie Turtle and embossed the brown panel with the squares and then added versamark and clear emboss powder to give a turtle shell like effect. I also added crystal effects to her shell. I love using this technique with my turtle cards. This week we have a great prize sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts Who will be giving the winner of this week's Challenge a choice of FIVE Images from their online Store.
I am entering the following challenges...Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge - summer time feeling, Create4fun - birthday card, Our Daily Bread Designs - punches or dies, Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - use the color kraft, Character Cafe - use dimensional glaze, Charisma Cardz - die cuts, Anything Goes - three layers.
