Dry Debossing Challenge

Hi all!  My awesome friend Dawn Easton (TreasureOiler) is hosting this week's Technique Challenge on SCS and she chose dry debossing as the challenge.  HERE'S the link to the challenge. Head on over and check it out if you get a chance...it's an oldie but goodie.


She asked me to be a sample maker and I happily said I'd love to join in. :) I embossed the largest panel with my swiss dots embossing folder, sponged Certainly Celery ink around the edges, added some machine stitching, and glued down the whole panel on the card base with foam tape.  The floral panel is the "debossed" panel for the challenge.  I embossed it with a floral embossing folder from SU, inked up the reverse side with my Certainly Celery ink pad (rubbed the ink pad directly onto the paper), and added some more machine stitching.  Then I just added a couple elements like the ribbon dies, rhinestone, "hello" sentiment, and punched butterfly.

What are you up to today?  If the rain holds out, I'll be headed to Kara's "field day" at school to see her participate in a bunch of different physical activity stations.

Have a good one!

Great card for the challenge, Denise, Well, I was hoping it wouldn't rain either, we were supposed to have some "Rain" gutter replaced today, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. Hope you have a good week.
