CWD's wants to see some embossing for this new challenge!

Crafting with Dragonflies - newest challenge
Wet and/or Dry Embossing!

Remember - always a card thanks!

You can use dry embossing or wet embossing or if you are a crazy fool like me you can do both!

Blame it on Pinterest! Saw something there that got me thinking......

I used an embossing folder on some copper card; then added randomly some silver and gold embossing powders; wanted to make it a bit grunge so added some black with sparkle as well. 

I put all that aside and then took some small wooden gears, and gussied them up with a metallic paint - they looked a bit too shiny and new so they had some Ebony EP put on them too but just a sprinkle!

The sentiment was stamped and embossed with copper EP and layered onto the various cards - black, gold and vanilla.

It can be a Father's Day card (our Father's Day is celebrated in September), Birthday or Celebration or Congratulation..........

You can see the smooth copper I started with in the bottom right corner (after the Embossing Folder had been applied). It had lovely texture - feels rough and rusty and old. I had trouble attaching the gears at first and when I finally got them to stick, my nicely random layering had gone and they were almost in a line up the page - bugger! This time they were stuck good so no can move.........

You can go to Crafting with Dragonflies and see the excellent work done by the DT and then get stuck into something to enter into the challenge!

I will enter this in the following:

We are into Spring regardless that it is early - and so the wind has arrived today - some rain also but not enough for us in the south-east of the island. However, there is lots of spring activity! Here is one photo taken recently by S Climie on Maria Island from the top of a mountain. I have climbed there myself in the early days and agree it is a lot longer down than it looks and the way down is behind these two not in front! Maria is an island off the coast of an island (Tasmania) of the bottom of an island (Australia)!

A stunning view from Bishop & Clerk on Maria Island thanks to Samantha Climie who says:

One of my favourite spots in Tassie. It's a lot further down than it looks.

You certainly grunged that up. Awesome.
What a gorgeous view. You wouldn't want to be afraid of heights.
