Playing around with embossing...

We've just returned from Coeur d'Alene for the regionals softball tournament. I didn't take nearly enough supplies with me, but you can be sure I did spend some time coloring images. I've been wanting to try some of the Zindorfian ideas, but I couldn't find my Versamark marker anywhere! I bought one instead! I didn't have any embossing supplies with me, so that was the first thing I did after returning home. Laundry? Who wants to do laundry when you can do some stamping instead!!! Anyway...I colored the dragonfly and embossed one with clear and another with polysparkle...cut out the sparkly wings and affixed them atop the other one. I sponged color around...so cool to not have to worry about sponging on the image. I'll definitely be trying my hand at more with this technique.

It's GORGEOUS! Those wings must look even prettier IRL 'cause you sure did a great jog of capturing them in your photo. Good for you to make a card instead of laundry! It's just gonna get dirty again anyway, right? lol

DIVINE! (yup I know, I'm screamin') ;0) This is THAT gorgeous. I love that shimmer sooooo much and the sponging is really incredible. I' a mucky sponger but you make me want to try it again. WOW! (Can you tell I love it?) heehee :0)

This dragonfly is simply stunning. I'm not sure how you did the sponging either, but it looks wonderful.

Maybe you could give me a idiot-proof instructions!
