A Snow Covered Lampost
Are you as ready for cold weather as I am? I am tired of being hot and can't wait for Fall. I would say Winter but Fall and Winter are pretty much the same in Central/Southern Alabama most years. We rarely get snow and when we do, we all run outside and enjoy it for the 15 minutes it lasts. Seriously! I love the way it looks so I was really drawn to this Snow Covered Lamp Post created by Pattie. It worked perfectly for the newest Pattie's Creations Design Challenge which is embossing of any type.
First I printed my image and sentiment, colored it up, "aged" the edges with some SU! Chocolate Chip ink, and then did 4 layers of versa mark and SU! glossy embossing powder. Then I bent it all up to "crack" the glass. I love this technique as it instantly gives you a vintage look which is what I wanted for this Christmas card.
Hope you are staying cool! If you would like to join us in the embossing challenge at Pattie's Creations, grab an image and come join us. Pattie gives away two prizes (2 of her images to each winner) - one to someone who uses a Pattie's Creations image and one to the other entries. You can also enter the challenge two times. I know you have a favorite embossing technique you would like to share with us!
Hugz and hope you are staying cool!
