Embossed Hugs - This week's challenge at Sew Many Challenges is to dry emboss. Dry embossing is so easy and can add so much to a card. I used a paisley folder by CB that I borrowed from a friend.
My DP is Allegancy be K and Company, my favorite brand of paper. I love their bold colors. I used 3 tiny stars in the upper left hand corner and I "lassoed" my sentiment Hugs. I thought hugs with a cactus was a fun sentiment to use.
My image is Donkey behind cactus by Sew Many Cards. I cut it with a Spell Binders and I also embossed the die cut pieces. It is colored with Copics and I used my olive colored Spica on the cactus needles.
My second card uses Cow and Chicken, and is today's Friday Freebie. I really like this image. Everyone on the team colored it so differently. I liked them all. You can get the Freebie today and today only.
Cow and Chicken was colored with Copics and I used some Stickles on the chickens tail feathers. I cut the bale of hay with my Cricut machine using the Old West cartridge. It is the icon image on the very last page in the book.
I also embossed the paper behind the image and pop-dotted the image up after hand cutting it.
I am entering the first card in the following challenges:
