This being the fifth Wednesday of the month, our challenge this week is the un-hosted Anything Goes.
I always feel as if I should do something other than a card for this challenge. My mind filled with ideas to do a wreath, a 3-D item, a home decor item, etc. But, I could not focus on any of those. So, I made a card:
I used a product from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, that is easy to overlook. It's a set of two embossing folders, each one measuring 6 1/2" by 2 1/4", each with a different pattern. It's called Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and can be found on page 25.
After embossing this flower pattern on a strip of Whisper White cardstock, I coloured over the raised portion with Lemon Lime Twist, Tangerine Tango, Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide inks.
In the past, I have tried colouring raised embossing using a variety of tools - brayer, sponge, dauber - with limited success. For this card, I used a different tool - my fingers! I can't take credit for this idea; it is something I had seen done by another demo who posted on our demo Facebook group. And, so sorry, I didn't make note of her name.
The DSP is from Delightful Daisy and the sentiment from You've Got Style. The card base is Thick Whisper White.
