C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Embossing

I have been so looking forward to using the beautiful set of flourishes stamps that I won recently and this seemed the ideal opportunity. Over at C.R.A.F.T. this week the challenge is embossing - it could be heat or dry or whattever type of embossing you fancy!
For my DT card I have used some coredinations vintage card as a base. I drew round a plate onto a piece of Bristol board (all very technical like!) then stamped around the lemon image added a few extra leaves and sentiment. Coloured with copics. Stamped centre area with lemons and heat embossed in clear to create a resist. Coloured over heat embossing with copics. Added the ribbon and hand tied a bow.

I am also entering this into the Copic Buzz challenge which is anything inspired by Nature - Flourishes that produce the lemons stamp are the sponsor this week - pop over and have a look! Some lovely creations by their D.T.
Again this week the DT at C.R.A.F.T. have done us proud with a wide range of different cards. Just Tracy's have sponsored the prize - thanks Tracy and look what you could win.....
An undecorated tabbed journal and some surprise goodies - we all love a surprise! Go on get embossing.....
