Arty Girlz - Embossing

The first Arty Girlz challenge for 2008, is to use embossing. I love heat embossing so I have used it in silver as flowers. The background is a piece of paper splattered with alcohol inks from when i was inking my piece for the final Art Journal card. I thought it looked just like a watercolour image of lilac bushes so stamped & coloured some pretty butterflies to nestle amongst the flowers. Butterfly stamp & Happy Birthday, Crafty Individuals. Flowers, See D's.
Silver embossing powder from Lakeland Ltd. Lilac paper from a pack from £1 shop.
