Fun in the sun for Deep Ocean Challenges

Midweek Magnolia DT - Embossing

Morning everyone!

Midweek Magnolias......

Whether you prefer heat embossing or dry embossing, I'm sure you are like me and can't make anything without some sort of embossing!
To be in with a chance of winning that awesome Magnolia prize, just make sure you don't enter more than five challenges including ours!
I used an embossing folder called 'In bloom' on the base card criss cross halves and then rubbed TH DI scattered straw over random parts of the embossed pattern. Lace from my stash was added to the criss cross edges. Magnolia DooHickeys: swirl and butterfly were added detail. 


The inner tag features an LOTV sentiment, SU small flower stamp around the edges and the Magnolia DooHickey butterfly as already mentioned (with plenty of Frantage!)

Magnolia Golden Week Tilda (coloured with DI's, surrounded by liquid pearl dots, shabby white frontage, black soot DI and faux stitching)
Spellbinders labels sixteen with white pen faux stitching under the image.
