FOSTV-embossing

The challenge on FOSTV (Friends of Speedy TV) found at Home of Speedy TV this week is embossing. I did wet and dry embossing. The wavy line at the bottom was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Just My Type. As you probably know, when you use these narrow embossing strips, they tend to leave an indentation sometimes either on the top or bottom on either side. Mine did that, so I just got out the Scor-Pal and scored where mine had that mark and it worked great. I like the score lines and it got rid of an ugly mark.

I'm using Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company stamp sets, Black Eyed Susans for Encouragement for the image and You Are Cherished for the sentiment.

I wet embossed the images using Stampin'Up! Perfect Plum ink  with Comotion clear embossing powder and the lighter flower is embossed using VersaMark and Zing thistle embossing powder.
After this, I cut out my images and popped them on my base.

Hope you'll join us. Hope you have a great week!!
