Creative Card Crew #87 Embossing Wet or Dry

   Hello and welcome to another Creative Card Crew challenge, I'm so glad you stopped by.  This time we are wanting to see some Embossing/ wet or dry.   Our sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle and they have generously offered .....           Up to $15 in Digi's

 I did three different forms of dry embossing and one was even a throw back to the old light table.  Anyone remember ??  before the Big Shot/ Sizzix Machines this is how we embossed  :0)  (see photo at end of post)
                                                             my VISION:
 this is a close up of the flower, I'm not sure you can tell in the picture but after I colored it with my copics I turned it over and took my MCGill tools and mat to  trace around the petals with a small point stylus then used a larger one to go over the back of all the petals.  This made them poof out a bit off the page.  I also sprayed the front of the card  with Glitter Dust to give it a little more sparkle.
 Here it is!!!  the old light table  have you ever used one?  If you have one do you even know where it is anymore?  For my 2nd type of embossing  I decided to use an old Etching Stencil to add border around the piece on the inside of the card.  I also followed through with the die cut flower theme on the inside top panel.  What do you think?

In case your wondering I did use the Big Shot on this(my third type of embossing):  The dots on the front were done with an embossing folder and the big shot.  The die cut on the front/inside is called Wildflower corner from Memory Box  It is new and I just think it is so beautiful!!!  I can see me using this one again and again.

Well thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out all the other designers and then join in on the fun with a card that you embossed for a chance to win the fabulous gift from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
p.s.  just thought you'd like to know..... I love reading comments and will read them all!!    :0)     so if you'd be so kind to leave me a word, know it will be appreciated.
