Dry Embossing






I made this for the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs:http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.com/2012/01/cheery-lynn-designs-challenge-12-dry.html They have some really nice embossing plates but I didn't have time to order one for the challenge so I made my own using their Exotic Butterflies Small to make my own. Two pieces of thin chipboard is the perfect height for the plate so I cut two of each butterfly and glued together before placing on the plate. The larger butterfly is their Exotic Butterflies Small #2 I Love how each set comes with 3 different butterflies. It was hard to capture the embossing so I scanned them in but the scan does not show the true colors so sharing the photo too. Thanks for stopping by!
