Yeah, it's Friday again and time for another SOUS reveal! I could hardly wait! This is our "no sketch, other challenge" week and we chose embossing this time around. Any type of embossing is permitted, we just want to see new projects. I chose to do Cuttlebugging ... although I actually use Cuttlebug folders in my old Sissix machine.
I had great fun doing this layout! I've been dying to break into my new DCWV Natural stack. There is lots of brown, rust and creams. My photo of the LO looks slightly orange-y but it's actually a copper foil and looks so yummy IRL. The photo is one of a family member and myself taken a few years ago .. when my hair was still red. LOL We had gone to Glamour Shots together and had a make-over and photos done. As we went back outside, we got more photos taken by family members and I love those the best.
Boy, I don't know where to start on this but here goes .. I knew I wanted to do a lot of distressing, so I distressed, inked, crumpled and cut away .. and used lots of layers. The crumpled edge is my amateur version of Robinzberds' technique over at Swirlydoos. Hers is perfection but I'm sure I'll get better at it if I keep trying. Beneath the wrinkles is a MS fan cut and one of my embossed (swiss dots) objects. I alos embossed my flowers (swiss dots) and my fence (distressed wood .)
My flower is from my George cart. I hadn't used it in a while and thought I wanted something simple like that. I used 6 layers on one flower and 4 on the other. I used a brad in the center and cinammon Stickles on the edges. It is hard to see the embossing because of the pattern to the paper but again IRL, I like the look. I used a Prima Say it in Crystals swirls in an amber sort of color that goes nicely with my paper.
