Embossing - LCOM Card Challenges

This week's card challenge, over at the Let's Capture Our Memories blog, is to use embossing on your card. I chose to go with dry embossing.

This piece of plastic packaging started out clear and flat. I had actually been trying to use it for last week's upcycling challenge, but couldn't make it fit. So this week, it ended up being embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and then inked with alcohol inks to make it look like galvanized metal. I'm happy with how it turned out - I'll be saving more packaging to try it again.

The flowers were punched from paper scraps. I rounded the shapes, and layered them for dimension.

PP, chipboard, stickers - Bo Bunny
dew drops - Stamping Bella
alcohol inks, distress ink - Ranger
other - plastic packaging
