Inspired by Embossing at Ike's World Challenge Blog

We've reached the midway point of the Embossing challenge at Ike's World Challenge blog. I created my card with both dry and heat embossing, distressing the edges for an "old world" flare. I colored my image, called Flamenco, with Copics before framing her with lines of pearls and a paper doily. Of course, I like to use any excuse to embellish with a feather, which finishes off my DT card today.
By the way, my dancer is holding castanets in her hands. I picked up a pair just to try out years ago. It may look easy from the audience, but after weeks of trying and failing, which included a demonstration from my cousin (who dances flamenco with Fuego 2000 Dance Troupe), I gifted them to her. She is amazing at her art!
Hope you have a lovely week crafting. If your project includes embossing,, be sure to link it up at Ike's World Challenge blog by the 23rd! Good luck!
