Good morning! Is it cold in your neck of the woods? It's a balmy 15 degrees at my house, but I have a card to share with you today that will give you the warm fuzzies. Here we are, ready for another Peachy Keen Challenge, and this time the challenge is to emboss. You can heat emboss, dry emboss, or both, if you like, just make sure to include some embossing on your card or project. For my card, I cheated a wee bit as I used this beautiful embossed card stock from the Penny Lane collection from My Mind's Eye. This paper is absolutely gorgeous, and I just couldn't pass it up!!
Do you LOVE this image, or what? The first time I saw these adorable mice from the Colby and Jack Cheese stamp set (PK-350), I couldn't wait to get my hands on them and get to coloring. As usual, I used my Copics, and I added lots of brush strokes to give little Colby a look like real fur. It's definitely a technique I want to keep practicing, but I like the way this one turned out. I cut Colby out with my Nestabilities, and embossed the edges, then while the die cut was still in the frame, I sponged some Baja Breeze ink around the image with a sponge dauber, leaving the embossed edge white. I just couldn't resist giving this little beauty some blue eyes, and bows to match those big beautiful eyes! Kathy has outdone herself with these images, my friends. If you like to color, then you're going to love the size and versatility of this stamp set. There are are six great sentiments included in this stamp set, along with stocking caps for accessories.
