No - I wasn't dancing while embossing today. In fact, I was pretty close, on a number of occasions today, to just stop what I was doing and walk away. I'd be nearly finished something and then there would be a smudge or smear. I'm shutting the craft room down for the night after this post.
So, here is my first majorly embossed creation using the Dynamic Duos colours - Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. I had a couple of the dry embossed pieces left over from a class. I embossed the Pleasant Poppies on velum with black embossing powder and then coloured in the flowers and stems.
Next is the page for 31 Pages in 31 Days. I did not keep to Lyssa's colour example today - and I added a circle and flipped the "sketch". I've had these dance pictures cut and tucked away on my craft table since LAST summer! When I saw the circles on Lyssa's example today, I decided that it was high time I got something done with them. I still fought with it, but I think I won in the end.....up until I smudged some of the silver Dazzling Details....and then rectified the situation.
I had fun babysitting Elliot last night. He spent a good half hour gnawing on his toys. I just sat and took pictures....poor little guy. I love the intent look on his face in some of them....here are just a couple to share.
And I'm off - I won't be posting a card tomorrow for Sunday Stamps as our fearless leader is in the midst of moving....but we will be back. I will most likely post a scrapbook page tomorrow....then I'm headed to Banff for a couple of days.
Hope you've had a day free of smudges and smears!!!
Thanks for visiting.
