Sally - It is time for another challenge at The Sweet Pea Stampers. Our challenge this fortnight is embossing - dry or wet. I used both on my card.

My image is Steampunk Sally by Teresa Sherman. It is available in digi and rubber at Sweet Pea Stamps. I have colored her with Copics. I added a real feather to her hat. 

My dry embossing folder is CB. I rubbed a gold ink pad across the raised images. My swirl is CL. My stick pin is from a stick pin swap that I did at CDAC (Crafters Digital Art Center.) It is free to join the art center and they always have a lot going on there. To include swaps and challenges. You can also pick up a lot of Freebies there as well.

My flower is a stem that I pulled off. The bow was tied with my Bow Easy.

I used gold Fran-tage for my wet embossing and finished off my card with 3 Dew Drops.
