Special Lady...

Good morning everyone...

We have a new challenge starting today at 
and it is
Special Lady

Our generous sponsor this time is 
with a £10 voucher for the lucky winner
For todays card I used the gorgeous Tiddly Inks Digi
 I have coloured this sweetie with Copics and created a little scene for her to stand in - I enjoyed this - it involved a rubber mallet and an embossing folder!

Briefly, you pop your background card inside the embossing folder and hit the folder with a rubber mallet just in the area you would like the embossed image to show on the card.

It took me a few attempts to get the right effect but I rather like it - I like how the pattern fades out and is a random border for the coloured image.

Anyways, once I was happy with it I coloured the background with a Distress Ink Pad and added a little die cut pathway and frame.

Finally I used a couple of sentiments from a set by Whimsy Stamps.

...and here we are, lovely Ellie Says Be Happy - well, I'm smilin'...

  15. This little girl is truly gorgeous Sue.... your colouring amazes me as always - the folds on her dress give it a lovely swirl! And I'm fascinated by the rubber mallet/embossing folder idea... I must give that a go... but I'm wondering how you came up with the idea??? and you happened to have a rubber mallet handy when you did?? Don't tell me - it's what you use to keep Nige in line!! LOL! Talking of him - I hope he's feeling better now and on the mend from his flu!

    Have a great weekend..
    Big hugs

  19. I love this one sweetie, her skirt is amazing, love the colour and her folds and I'm really loving your cut out too. You're getting great use from your Silhouette and making me crave one even more. The embossing is genius too.
