Can You Handle The Pressure - Things with Wings

 Hello Friends, thanks for stopping by today!

We have a new challenge starting today over on our new Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge Blog and the TWIST theme is 'THINGS with WINGS'.  Remember, the twist is optional but you MUST use an embossing folder on our projects to qualify for the prize.  Heat embossing is also permitted but only in conjunction with an embossing folder.

 Here's what I've created to inspire you today.  

 Today's card really showcases just how quickly you can create a card by using an embossing folder.  Now keep in mind, I've taken a few extra steps by doing a bit of coloring, faux stitching and adding a sentiment but by simply just adding an embossed panel to a card front, your card could be ready to go.  Here's how this panel looked before coloring . . .

I first used what extra ink was left on my green distress oxide ink dauber to give the vines a bit of color then I've used Tombow markers to carefully color the embossed leaves and birds.  For added dimension, I've used lime green Nuvo Crystal drops on all the 'dotted' spots.
 A quick & easy sentiment was added by using one of the many available in the Creative Expressions 'Everyday' Wordies Sentiments Sheets.

I do hope you'll come check out our new blog and play along.
AND yep ... we will be offering prizes at our challenges ... that's always a fun surprise!

Here's today's prize offering . . .
