New England Stamper: Embossing Challenge

January 14, 2010

Embossing Challenge

It was my turn to set the Spicy Supply Challenge on Gingersnaps on Wednesday and this month we chose embossing powder. Here's the card I made using a beautiful floral image from Serendipity Stamps.

[Note: check out Sharon's awesome interview with Serendipity's owner, Mary Lee.]

Serendipity Geraniums Ali Manning

I embossed the main image with black e/p on watercolor paper and the sentiment on vellum c/stock. The geraniums were watercolored with reinkers, the panel distressed and sponged around the edge. And I added some Creamy Caramel speckles on the main panel with a marker and a spritzer tool.

I hope you find time to join in the challenge!


  • Stamps: large Geranium & sentiment (Serendipity)
