MyGrafico Challenge #58 Embossing

shadowcloseupajhcopy

Been a very busy week for me and it’s not even close to being over yet. It’s that time of year already… 4-H judging time! We have judging today for Allie’s cooking project, she made peanut butter cookies. Tomorrow is her birthday/slumber party as she is turning 11 on Friday. So the rest of the day and tomorrow I will be decorating her cake that she picked out (Candy Land board game!). And also starting tomorrow, oldest is off to State Fair for Llamas with her 4-H group and I will be going on Saturday to help out! Yes a very busy week but I’m glad I have stamping to help me keep my sanity! So…..

For today’s MyGrafico Challenge we were asked to emboss. We were given the set from Mygrafico called Summer Sweety Girl designed by dilek design studio. You can see the rest of the DT projects at the Mygrafico Challenge Blog. (Mygrafico has opened their challenge blogger back up so check it out, become a follower, play along and have a chance to win some free sets!)

I when I first saw this set, a shadow box card jumped into my head right away. I embossed my ‘water’ with the swirl cuttlebug folder and used a scallop circle Nestie for my sun. Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits was used to color the images. There is crystal effects on the ball and lifesaver. Everything is attached with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give even more dimension. I used Mudd Puddle sand and shells for the beach part of the card. If you look real close there are clouds as I used the cloud stencil and a light blue ink.
