Fairy Fun Fridays- WET embossing!




Friday, woot woot. As you read this I am asleep . Yup 10 am and sleeping! Sorry! I am currently working nights so I am often in bed by 9 am after a 12 hr night shift. 

It's time for another Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge. Yes, it has been two weeks already. Where is the time going, I have no idea! There were some beautifully designed Sugar & Spice creations at our last challenge & we hope this weeks challenge brings on some more great designs! 

Our theme for the next two weeks is

WET (heat) EMBOSSING

Meaning get out your versamaker/versamark ink pad,  embossing powder & your heat tool for this one!! We want to see what kind of embossing you can come up with. 
My creation is not very extravagent, but fun, nonetheless. 
I used a SU background stamp called Cheesecloth & I embossed it with white embossing powder. This is what can be seen behind my image. Don't get it confused with the actual cheesecloth I added as well. The sun is a chipboard piece and the fishy stickers are from my stash. Ribbon is misc from AGES ago (one would say my hoarded stash) as is the SU Hodge Podge Hardware. I barely use them anymore. 

And Oohhhhhhhhhhhh I got Photoshop Elements (which I now don't know how to use after a quickie teaching session from my BFF, The Fairy herself--how does the saying go "use it or lose it"...)......AND I was able to merge my Fisherman Lewis with my Fishin' Gilly  from Prairie Fairy Designs to make this cute door hanger for when my hubby & daughter go fishing. 



thanks for stopping by today & I can't wait to see you at the FFF challenge this week

Challenges for my card: to follow
Charisma Cardz- embossing
Fab'n'Funky- distressed/torn
Use it Tuesdays- use metal
Sweet Stamps- lots of layers
Simon Says Stamp- Nursery Rhyme (10 little fishes)
Ten Little Fishes
Ten little fishes were swimming in a school, 

This one said, "Let's swim where it is cool."
This one said, "It's a very warm day."
This one said, "Come on, let's play."
This one said, "I'm as hungry as can be."
This one said, "There's a worm for me."
This one said, "Wait, we'd better look."
This one said, "Yes, it's on a hook."
This one said, "Can't we get it anyway?"
This one said, "Perhaps we may."
This one, so very brave, grabbed a bite and swam away.
