IBS WHW #121 Tutorial/Challenge.

Here I am again enjoying the latest tutorial/challenge over at 
which is
I wasn't completely happy how my embossing turned out as it wasn't
neat like Shea's so left it for a while and when I came back
I looked at it again and liked that the embossing was
 uneven and thought it fitted the overall grungy look I wanted.
This colour combination for my card
is certainly a little different to my usual but I had this gorgeous paper
from Gina K called Wisteria Lane that just seemed to be right.
The photo is showing that the card base is blue but it really is purple.
I used the following
Purple & White card stock
Gina K Wisteria Lane DP
Spellbinders Flourish
Spellbinders Labels 18
Spellbinders Fancy Tags
Marianne Dies for the flower & leaves .
Zing embossing powder in purple & green
IBS Stamp - Birthday Wishes.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you will come back again soon.

Oh Ina, I'm SO glad you left it for a bit then went back because you did a fabulous job with the embossing! Sometimes it just takes stepping away for a bit to appreciate what one has done, and I, too, love the "sweet grunge" look that the flecks have imparted. I try not to get my embossing too neat because I LIKE the look of the extra "crumbs," it adds a bit of sassiness to the technique. :) Thanks so much for playing along with us at Inspired By Stamping!
