Embossing Challenge at Lily Pad Cards

100_3506 by judkajudy
The challenge over at the Lily Pond is to make a card involving embossing. I used the emboss resist method, stamping the Sparkle image by Penny Black with VersaMark and embossing with clear. I then used the sponge applicator and daubers to add the Distress Ink for color. I deliberately made the frame a bit larger on two sides, just for interest.

Today is the first day I was able to wind a bobbin and thread the needle on my sewing machine without looking it up in the manual! What an awesome experience! That used to be a one hour ordeal!

I was thinking as I was coloring this image with Distress Inks that they are to stamping what the microwave and dishwasher are to the kitchen!!

Hope you're having a great Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!!
