Polka Doodles #27: Add Some Embossing

Good morning, friends!!! It's FRIDAY.... at last, so brace yourself for another fortnight of challenges, friends! A new theme starts today: "Add Some Embossing" - wet or dry... as long as it actual, real, proper embossing and not "digital embossing".

My card features a fairy called Serenity Blossom from the sweet Serenity Fairy Collection. The patterned paper is from the Work & Play 10: Country Life Collection. I embossed the background paper with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder and inked it Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to make the swirly design stand out. The ticket tag is also from the Serenity Fairy Collection, which I inked with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. To finish I added lashing of Stardust Stickles and pale blue bling.

Serenity Blossom and is also available as a separate download digi. I coloured her with Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils. She is a joy to colour. Yesterday, I posted another fairy from the Serenity Fairy Collection called Serenity Fairy Kisses. You can see her in this blog post.
