Football Al

Embossing #101
The challenge this week at Come And Get It challenges is for Embossing, either dry or heat embossing - I used both types of embossing in this card.  Come and join in with us at Come And Get It challenges.

What a perfect image for a boy's card - a Time for Tea digi image.  Jackson, one of my grandsons will be seven next birthday, and he loves football so this is for him.

I dry embossed blue card, rubbedVersamark ink over the high spots and heat embossed it with clear powder (funny, it seems to make it a different colour, which is pretty cool).  I then dry embossed some green card with a wavy design, inked over it with distress inks and diecut it with a chevron die.  Hey presto, grass!  I also diecut a little bit of grass as well in lighter green to frame the image.

The Time for Tea image is coloured with Reno pens, fussy cut out, then the ball covered with Glossy Accents.  Al's eyes have highlights done with white gel pen.  These are all layered using different thicknesses of foam tape to make it more 3D.

Fabulous card, I love how you made the embossing fit into the background and part of the scene. Perfect for a young boy.

Gosh, you have been busy!!! So many fantastic techniques used in this card. Love how you coloured the embossed areas in the background paper and the way you created the grass is so clever. Your colouring of the soccer player is incredible too, right down to his shiny football. So glad you linked this one to the TIME OUT challenge too!!!
