Emboss it, wet or dry - MilkCoffee DT

Good morning all! At least, it may be morning for some of you, and others will be reading this in the morning. Others will not, lol. As for me, by the time this goes live I will be in the land of Nod, because I don't really get on with 4am any more, lol!

I just wanted to let you all know that I am still having a lot of trouble on and off with Blogger... It's letting me post ok, but refuses to show my feed most of the time, which is making visiting blogs almost impossible. Every now and then I can get through on a bookmarked link, but I don't exactly have all of the 500 blogs I'm following bookmarked! So please bear with me... I will hopefully be back to normal soon.

Anyways... I do believe I hinted that there would be another embossing challenge this month, and here it is! The MilkCoffee theme this fortnight is Emboss it - wet or dry, so here is my third and final embossed card this month:

I used the image Rock and Roll Super Star, as I figured he would go perfectly with my other embossing folder!

I originally planned to use some starry paper too, but got distracted by this one as I was browsing through a stack of "unknown" papers... To be honest, I think having that part starry too may have been a little overkill anyway. The sentiment is from a set of Kanban stamps and the glittery star is a super old bit of stash (meaning about 18 months old, as that's when I started crafting! lol), which I'd been hanging on to for just this kind of  occasion.

As you can probably see, I did almost no colouring on the image! well, I coloured everything except the clothes, which I instead highlighted with gold Stickles and liquid pearls! I actually had a reference picture of Elvis in this suit open on my computer just so I got all the gold bits in the right places. :-)

Now then, I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but I do think you should now run off and go emboss something. with so many challenges to enter, you really have no excuse not to!

Be excellent to each other!

I've been having the same issues with Blogger Sammy and find I have to log off and go back in, a real pain. I did the same last year for a time then seemed to rectify, so fingers crossed.

Great card with 'The King'.
