Heart 2 Heart Challenge #6

Here is the Heart 2 Heart Challenge #6.  It is a Technique Challenge.  You can use any technique that you would like to.  If you need some help coming up with one go to google and type in Stamping Techniques.  Be sure to post your work, I would love to see what you come up with.  Go to the Heart 2 Heart blog by clicking on the icon to the right to see what everyone has come up with.  Here is mine.

I used Embossing as my technique.  I did two kinds of embossing on this card.  First - I used dry embossing for the bottom of the card.  Using my scoring blade on my paper trimmer I just scored every 1/2 inch on the diagonal.  Then I flipped it around and scored again every 1/2 inch on the diagonal to create this diamond pattern.  I then turned the cardstock over and used my sanding block and sanded until the white showed through enhancing the diamond pattern.  Second type of embossing is Heat Embossing.  On the little frog I heat embossed using white embossing powder on Bamboo cardstock.  Then I added some shading by sponging on some sweet leaf green around the image.  I also used the new irristables from CTMH that has embossing already on the chipboard cut outs.  All my supplies to make this card (except the white embossing powder) came from the Miracle Kit that is available from CTMH until the end of May.

Thanks for playing along.  I hope that everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!
