Eat Cake..........


Today I am sharing my DT card for the  new challenge which starts today at Glitter N Sparkle  Hope you can join in for Challenge 173 Embossing - Dry or Heat.

This week my image is Baking Love - Lemon Shortbread

I have coloured this gorgeous image with promarkers before cutting with an oval die and then embossing with a sizzix folder - I have to confess this step was a - what if moment - but I loved the texture achieved on the image which really made her pop, the edges were inked with victorian velvet distress ink to achieve another layer and show u the texture.   Next an oval aperture was cut from a piece of pink ColourCore card which was then embossed and the design was sanded back, a layer of pink patterned paper was added behind the aperture before adding my image. Edges of the card base were also inked with Victorian velvet, lastly pink gems were added.

I would also like to play at the following challenges

Lemon Shortbread - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - challenge 410 Ladies Only
As You Like It - Favourite One or Multilayer project( & why) - Multilayers always for me love the texture you can achieve and with layers
Fussy and  Fancy Friday Challenge - Monochrome
