Anything Goes Embossing With A Twist of THINGS WITH WINGS

The challenge at Anything Goes embossing has a twist with wings and I chose to use a butterfly leftover from a previous project that used velvet paper in two colours of purple which I also embossed using a dot folder. The darker purple doesn’t show the dots on the photo unfortunately. The main panel used a folder from Spellbinders called Carved Tile. I had done it a while ago and wasn’t happy with the embossing at the time so it sat on my desk until I decided whether I wanted to use it. In the end I decided to swipe Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber inks over it and decided it was not a disaster. I added some pops of colour dots in the debossed circles of the design. I backed the panel with a black piece and added the sentiment underneath the butterfly. Sentiment is from a new set just acquired from MayMay Made It called Tiny Faces and I used a sparkle pen over the words with a tiny gem for the dot on the i. The card turned out better than I expected and I’m quite pleased with it even though the embossing wasn’t quite as defined as I had wished.

  1. Thanks Gayle. I had a little trouble with this folder and couldn’t get the sandwich right for the pressure. I think I’ve figured it out now.
