I've been very remiss lately and actually had to remove a spiderweb from my embossing box! That's how long it is since I've done any embossing LOL!
So I was very pleased that the theme chosen at Crafty CardMakers this week is Dry Embossing - it got me back actually using this lovely, if sometimes tricky, technique.
I could have got the Big Shot out - I've just bought Tim Holtz's embossing folders - but I thought I'd have a go at the original technique on vellum with a couple of ball-tools and I've also added some paper-pricking too!
The backing paper is K&Co Winter Wonderland and the flower is Petaloo from 'Across the Sea' set. The colouring is with Copics and the holly leaves topped with glossy accents. Red adhesive gems were popped onto the berries to give a little accent. The holly border is Martha Stewart and I've embossed some leaves too.
You really need to pop over to Crafty CardMakers to see the wonderful projects by my team-mates and our sponsor is the fab Prairie Fairy!
Look forward to seeing all your entries!
