Pink Wishes

Pink Wishes - It is time for another fun challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog. We are up to D and D is for...... Dry Embossing.

I went out of my comfort zone on this one and dry embossed on printed paper. I must say that I like the result, so I am sure that I will try it again soon. My folder is CB's Victoria.

DP is Pressed Petals, Baby Girl. I paired the DP with a bright green. Pink and Green is one of my favorite color combo's, so I was happy to use it here.

My flowers and tulle with pearls are from the wedding section at Hobby Lobby. It is one of my favorite area's to shop from. Everything from that department is so elegant and it just dresses up my crafts. My ribbon is from Pizzazz Aplenty. They have such great prices and the rolls are huge. I usually pay more for a small than what I paid for this roll of 25 yards for.
My image is Glenda Saturated Canary. I won her in a challenge. Glenda is colored with Copic's, then cut with a Spellbinders. I dry embossed and inked with tea dye distress ink.

I gave her dress and wand tip a coat of Stickles. What is a fairy witch without sparkle?
My Sentiment is Hot Off the Press, punched with a pair of SU punches. I was enjoying dry imbossing so much that I even embossed the sentiment. I was concerned that it would distract from the the sentiment, but I am very happy with it.
Pull out those embossing folders and come join us at Alphabet Challenge Blog.
