Magnolia Down Under Challenge #81


Our challenge at Magnolia Down Under this week is using a technique I just LOVE - Embossing! You can use either dry embossing or heat embossing - or a mixture of both.

To me embossing is all about adding texture - and so I wanted the texture to be the star of the show. To this end I went with a white on white theme to showcase the different textures. I have used 3 different embossing folders for added interest. I decided against embossing the Magnolia Doohickey die fence as it's flat finish adds another dimension. I added a little glass pebble with a frog prince inside as a touch of whimsy.

Please don't forget to check out our blog HERE to see what the rest of the Magnolia Down Under DT has embossed to inspire you.
