SCS Challenges with The Stamping Boutique

Okay, so I didn't get a chance to put some cards together, I did spend a good part of the day coloring ... Have about 8 images to "find a home" lol. 

I forced myself to get at least one on a card, so looked up the Splitcoast challenges for this week and found Monday's Technique challenge and today's Sketch challenge.

I first took a piece of Stampin' Up designer paper and ran it through one of my CB embossing folders, then took my brayer inked up with Versamark (MAKE sure to use your embossing buddy, she says from experience, lol, lots of paint brush dusting off the excess today).  I just got this copper embossing powder.

The image is Daisy's from The Stamping Boutique.  The initial image was a bit wide and I didn't want to hide all the copper embossing, so I cut it down, leaving the part of the image outside to overhang the mat - I actually love the way this turned out.  Finishing touch was the lucsious red ribbon.  I didn't add a sentiment because I didn't want to cover up the embossing or the image ... so there, lol ... it's just a note card.

Well, I'm thinking I'm off to bed now ... so much shoveling today and coloring have tired me out - I never meet up with my pillow before 12-1 am, so he'll be surprised to see me this early (11:06 pm).

Take care - check back tomorrow afternoon to see what I came up with for the other things I colored.
