Embossed Fern Leaf

Hi, everybody!  It's Broni here today with my project for this month's ePlay challenge: Embossing.


It's a simple card but I just love the dimension that embossing gives to any project.

I started by placing my Mini Ferns stencil onto my card stock.  I used some Ranger tissue tape to hold it in place.


I pressed my Shabby Shutters ink pad onto my craft sheet then mixed in some white embossing paste with my palette knife.


I spread it lightly and evenly through the stencil.


 Next I added some translucent embossing paste using the Tiny Circles stencil, and sprinkled on some Tumbled Glass Distress Glitter.


Using my water brush and some Peeled Paint ink I added some shadows to the embossed fern after it had dried.


 The last step to complete my card front panel was to distress and sponge the edges with Tumbled Glass ink and a mini ink blending tool.


I added a hand cut flag and used one of the pieces of tissue tape on it that I had used to tape the stencil down.  No waste!  I used my Mini Attacher to attach a piece of Film Strip Ribbon, then added my die cut Happy using foam mounting tape.


And that's it!  My ePlay challenge: Embossing project!  I hope you'll play along too!

Thanks for stopping by!
