Spring is here....

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Embossing of Any Kind’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site. 

I'm using a pretty image today called 'Spring Style'. I've used some lovely soft papers from Echo Park one which I embossed with a Marianne Design die to create a 'brick wall'. 

My image has been stamped onto X-Press It Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers. The colours I’ve used are: 

Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E44, E43, E42, E41 
Clothes, Boots & Bag - R85, R83, R81, BG72, BG70.

Here’s a close up of the image. 

Stamps: Spring Style (The Paper Shelter), Sentiment (LOTV)
Card: Whisper White Thick & Early Espresso (Stampin' Up)
Papers: Baby Cakes &  Lt.Pink/Teal - Bundle of Joy (Echo Park Paper Co.)
Ink & Markers: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
