Gator Greetings - Embossing + Dies at International Art & Soul Challenge

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge, chosen by DT member Debbie, is Embossing + Dies.

The cute gator is a rubber stamp (Recollections) that I've had for years. I colored it with Copic markers and added visual texture with alohol. I used an embossing folder to add tactile texture to its body. The sentiment (Technique Tuesday) was heat-embossed in dark blue.

The crocodiles were cut with a Cuttlebug die. I put one in the shaker, and used a few more as embellishments on the outside & inside.

  6. Stunning use of texture and a die CG, but have to say it is the croc paper, croc and sentiment which I totally love. I find when I get papers like this I have no idea what to do with them, maybe I need to come visit you for several play days hahahaha xxxxxxx
