This weeks challenge at Sew Many Challenges is to use wet or dry embossing in your creation! Even though I don't use embossing in my projects that often, I do love the look of it. I guess I need to use this technique more often, it's one of those techniques that slip my mind until after I get my project done, and then I think I should've used embossing in a particular area. Sort of like a V8 moment lol
So for this weeks project I used a new image from Sew Many Cards called Duncan Under Mushroom Umbrella. It's available through the SMC VIP September Club. For more information you can check out the VIP GROUP.
Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps and the winner will receive 5 digital images of their choice from the SBS Store! So hurry over and play along with us!
Without further ado, my Thanks for looking and hope you like!
