Emboss It at Try It On Tuesday

Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday. 

The last 2 weeks have flown by, and it is time for a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Animal: Real or Imaginary challenge. And thanks to  Merja for hosting that challenge also. 

It's time for a new challenge. Our next challenge is Emboss It.  You can go with either wet or dry embossing, just include some in your art. Here is my piece for the new challenge. I went with a journal page (maybe not my best) where I was playing with some art bits.

My background was messy painted  with some gouache paints. I had been trying out some color combos.  These felt like fall so I decided to use embossed leaves on my page. I used a Sizzix embossing and cutting  die to make the leaves out of some copper metallic paper. 

The Xs are some hand cut stamps. I wanted a big X , and then I didn't want to waste the scraps so I used them to make some smaller X shaped images.

I stamped the X's with black ink. Then I die cut the flowers and the leaves. I drew in the little line because I needed a place to put those die cut flowers as well as the 2 images which are from a Stamperia set. The quote comes from the same set. 

Don't forget at Try It on Tuesday our challenges run for 2 weeks and all sorts of art that meets the challenge topic is accepted. And definitely look at the other design teams pieces. They are a creative group and have lots of good embossing ideas. 

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope to see your embossed art over at Try It On Tuesday.

I was most impressed by the leaves. That gives me an idea. You really inspired me, Erika.

Love the couple, oh, but Autumn can wait - trees are still green here.
Is embossing that what I did with hot temps?
Only did on envelopes lately. Oh, I need more time (but won´t beg for that!) Hugs and... to pretty please a few more green days.
