Amusing Challenges

Welcome to week 2 of my Amusing Challenges!  This week is a technique challenge – hot embossing!  Maybe you call it wet embossing… 🙂

I forgot to mention what this month’s prize was!  It’s a package of 25 assorted paper flowers from a•muse studio…it’s a nice variety of tiny to good sized cosmos!  Yum!  Each Sunday I’ll be having a different type challenge – but over a month you will see:  “use it”, theme, color or a sketch challenge.

Juliet has a great card this week…with a happy “mistake” in it, you could say.  She embossed the first batch of butterflies with Versamark and clear powder.  But her pad was very dirty and she thought the butterflies weren’t as vibrant as she wanted, so she came back in and embossed some more in white.  I think it’s perfect!  I especially think it’s neat that even though Snail & Co is a “cute” set, this card ended up looking very elegant!

My card is a super quick and easy CAS card.  I like these colors {a•muse studio cardstock in: squash, cocoa and bermuda on top of kraft} together and I thought they looked “beachy”…I hope you agree! Sea Shells, a•muse studio
