Basic Grey DT - Embossing

This weeks challenge at Basic Grey is a nice and easy one, this is one of our Lucky Draw challenges which means it can be anything at all, the challenge ideas for the Lucky Draw challenges are all put into a hat (well technically random,org hehe) and one is picked at random to be our challenge :), So the challenge picked for this week is Embossing, this can be Heat or Dry Embossing or even both if you fancy , its completely up to you :), but don't forget to use at least one item from BasicGrey if you want to be able to win our Fabulous Monthly prize, Also feel free to combine your creations with any other challenge blog that allows you to do so.

Do check out the other DT's inspirational creations.

I'm not at all happy with this one, though it does look better IRL,  it would not photograph probably for the reason I'm not happy with it - there's too much going on - it's too busy. I like the individual elements, but somehow they just don't sit together right.

I coloured my Manga girl with Copics, cut her out and 'sat' her on a Labels 4 nestie embossed with the Spots & Dots folder, in turn I sat this on white folder embossed with  Forest Branches folder.  The blue card, sat at an angle is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. All the papers are from the gorgeous Wisteria line.....the raffia ribbon from 
Bunny Zoe's, the flower are cut with the EK Success Waterlily punch (at least I think 
that's what is called), the branches from Sizzix branch and leaves die.
The pearls and charm are from my stash.

Hi Heather, I love your card and your Manga girl is so cute, gorgeous how you coloured her. I know how it is when you don't like something once finished, it's so frustrating and it's I'm sure as you say how it photo'd, I've had loads like that which just don't seem to look right in the picture. The Wisteria papers are so pretty and so is the Sizzix punched leaves and water lily flower (must look into that one :)) Hope you have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Chris xx
