Challenge #12 ~Who's The Boss~

Welcome Sweet Friends,  This is Challenge #12 ~Who's The Boss~ for Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.

Show some embossing on your challenge.  You can use dry or wet embossing.  You can use an embossing folder or a stencil.  You can emboss with embossing paste or embossing powder.  You can even crete something with ultra-thick embossing enamel.  You probably have some sort of embossing apparatus in your hoard!  Pull these embossing tools out and put them to use!

One lucky winner will receive this prize package, donated by Crafters's Companion, Spectrum Noir.

Here's my DT project for this challenge.  I used an image from a friend on Creative Souls named Teddi, her ditigal work is just amazing.  For this project I used some Imaginarium Designs chipboard that I embossed.  I used lots of Tim Holtz's new Tissue Tape and some stencils from my local scrapbook store.  So much fun!

And here's another project using the products from our sponsor.  I received the cute little ballerina stamp, the beautiful butterfly embossing folder, the ultr smooth white chardstock, and PP1, FS6, and TN2 Spectrum Noir alcohol pins.

Challenge Rules are here Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.  Make sure to link your project using the link tool on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.  Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see their projects for this's the links.
