elegant embossing

Happy Thursday crafty friends. I'm happily posting on time this week! At Seize the Birthday this week we are all about embossing (of any kind) thanks to Barbara.  I decided to use some embossing powder and do some watercolouring with some Distress Oxide ink.

Be sure to pop on over to the blog to check out the elegant creations from the design team and our Surprise Party Guest, Vicky Hayes!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

  1. This looks amazing! I love the colours and how the purple brings the three jellyfish to the foreground. And since I just happen to have this stamp too... I may have to CASE this! ;)

  2. I agree that the purple jellyfish really pop out, but I love the softer colors of the ones in the background too! Wonderful card, Glenda!

  3. Pretty card. The purple jellyfish do pop and was the first thing to catch my eye. Love the soft colors in the background too.

  4. I love this embossing technique and your card is amazing with the sea of jelly fish. Love that you singled out just a few and made them purple. Smashing card.

  5. Fantastic card, Glenda! Your choice of contrasting colors is what really makes this shine! Awesome card! Have a great day!

  6. The pop of purple worked out splendidly!

  7. I too love the colours, (I googled the term for a group of jellyfish, it's a smack!!) The white embossing looks wonderful too, Cathy x

  8. You certainly made your wonderful background pop!!! This is awesome.

  9. What a neat card! I thought the three jely fish were actually separately cut until I looked closer - they were part of the rest of the background! Love how that purple brought about that illusion! :)

  10. I thought these were umbrellas at first Glenda! What a wonderful image to showcase your heat embossing. Love the way you've added colour too. Thanks for the warm welcome - such fun guesting with you all! Vicky x
