Through the Purple Haze Embossing challenge.

It's time for a new challenge at Through the Purple Haze and this week we want to see your creations using embossing.

We are sponsored by My Mums Craft Shop


I must admit I avoid heat embossing (embossing powder plus heat gun plus two year old equals disaster!) But I do own a lot of embossing folders and don't use it as a technique as often as I'd like.  Here's my card


My main image is Harley from my favourite stamping company Visible Image and would you believe I was lucky enough to win him in one of their giveaways!  I coloured him with Distress Markers used as watercolours.  The sentiment and hearts and diamonds are all part of Harleys stamp set.  I used two different embossing folders, checks and dominoes, but I've had them both so long I have no idea what makes they are! I finished off with some dots of pearly Cosmic Shimmer to make a border.


Isn't Harley a cutie? But there's something a wee bit creepy about him too, I think it's that crooked smile, I love it!

I can't wait to see all your embossed creations, please pop along to the blog here  for all the details of our challenge.

I agree, there is definitely something in Harley's smile that says he's up to no good.

Great card. Perfect embossing folders. Love the twine.
