Inkspirational Challenge #292 - Designer's Choice - Emboss Your Background - You're Pretty Awesome (Altenew Butterflies in Clouds)


Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #292 where our Designer's Choice challenge, selected by our wonderful Julia, is "Emboss Your Background."  Embossing folder, heat embossing, stencil embossing (and probably a few more techniques I've not thought of) long as you feature embossing on your background, you're good to go. 

After many years of owning Altenew's Painted Butterflies stamps, I finally had the opportunity to add the dies. Ohmyword! What a difference they make when it comes to both stamping and placement. I'm in love with this collection all over again. My three butterflies are flitting and fluttering through a background of embossed clouds. Seriously, those butterflies...swoon. Sentiment is one of the reverse simple strips from Taylored Expressions.

Looking forward to seeing what style of embossed background you'll bring to the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

Love the colors you used on the painted butterflies from Altenew. I really need to bring those back out. They make gorgeous cards.

What gorgeous painted butterflies fluttering around your beautiful white embossed clouds Carol! The pretty colors against the white gives such a light airiness to your design! Julia xx

I'm playing catch up after our vacation and I've missed a whole lot of pretty! Each card is as wonderful as the next, Carol!
