Digi Choosday - Use some embossing

I've used both dry and heat embossing on this project. I have dry embossed the backing paper, which can be found as part of the Nikky mini kit. The bonnet image is one of the embellishment digi's from the Rose Budd collection. My heat embossing is the semtiment in the corner.

The trellis die cut is from Tonic, cut from a Sage Green pearlescent card. I've an Embossalicious embossing folder, from Crafters Companion and edged with Bundled Sage Distress Ink. I've coloured the image with Spectrum Noirs and the sentiment is from a freebie I had from one of the Crafters Companion magazines and has been heat embossed with Arctic Bay Lustre embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer.

Digi Choosday - Tag it! & My anniversay

Well seeing as it's my 1st anniversary this week for being on this fabby team, I gone all out and used not 1 but 4 images. (Greedy, I know!) I've used Octavia Bird in Hand on the front and the 3 other images on the tags inside are all from Octavia Moonfly. The papers and sentiments are all from this collection, however they can also be found in mini kits on the Octavia Collections page.

And here's my picture titorial of how I made it.

All the images have been coloured with Distress Markers and the papers edged with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I made the hat pins and those along with the feathers using items from my stash.

Both backing papers are from the Male Caravan section, with the check paper having been re-coloured in Craft Artist. The sentiment is also from this collection and I suspect originally susposed to match with the Doctors in the collection, but fits perfectly with my theme. The image is also available as a digi for you to colour here.

The 'Dad' word is stamped usiing Clarity word box stampes & letters.

Hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the team have come up with.
