Passion for Promarkers - Embossing...

Happy Tuesday, dear crafty friends! You know what that means?...Yep, there's a new challenge starting over at Passion for Promarkers and we'd love it if you could join in with the fun! Our theme has been set by the lovely Sue who has chosen 'Embossing' - so we'd like you to create something using some form of embossing, this could be dry embossing with an embossing folder, etc, heat embossing using watermark ink and embossing powders or even embossing paste...
Our fabulous sponsor this week is Uniko, who are offering one lucky winner a stamp set of their choice (must be in stock)...
I went a bit off piste again for this one and decided to share another way of using your pens to create backgrounds and though I haven't done this for a while (and now wonder why the heck not?!) I love the effect that colouring embossing gives! I couldn't make up my mind which colours to go with, so ended up with a pastel rainbow of shades...
I am still very much in love with all things CAS, so I dug out my Spellbinders Curved Borders One and just added some grosgrain ribbon and a couple of small sentiment tags...sometimes less is definitely more! Oh, I did add some liquid pearls in Bisque to the embossed dots for a touch of shine.
Right off to shuffle some paper around to sort out for next workshop - Mam has just arrived, so I'd better get the kettle on!
Crafty hugs,

This is such a pretty card, love the embossed panel...I have never thought about colouring embossing with promarkers like that but now I have seen this I will definitely be trying it. Love the gorgeous pastel shades and the curved border too :)

Hi, Marjorie! Apologies of not detailing how I made this card...I have embossed a piece of white card using Taylored Expressions Leafy Vine embossing folder, then coloured over the embossing using my Promarker pens. It is quite easy to do, but more so if you use lighter shades in case you get and bleeding. I have then added some Liquid Pearl dots to where the dots are on the folder. Hope this makes sense! Hugs, Lisa
