FOSTV Challenge 9 for 2012

The weeks seem to fly past lately - it is Monday again and fortunately I have the day off work.  I am sorting out my craft space and getting in one holy mess.  Hopefully I will be glad I did it when I get to the end but if you are like me you usually find a few things near the end that have "no home"!  I completed this card before the major sort out began so I am really glad I did.

The challenge at  FOSTV this week is to use embossing.  Now you could use dry embossing by hand or with an embossing folder or you could you embossing powder and a heat gun - I got a bit of both onto this card..

The brown background card is embossed and then lightly sanded.  The main image was stamped onto a brayered background and then coloured with pencils.  The grass and sentiment were stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed.  The cat, sentiment and grass are from two different MFP sets - Big Cats and Buffalo Spring. Please join in the challenge this week - we would love to see what you create.  You can find the challenge here.  I am also entering this card in a recent inspiration challenge IC324 and the inspiration piece I chose is this one

Take care and have a good week.

    Beautiful big cat and elegant card! I believe my 2 cats have the "big cat syndrome!"
