Another Sunday and another OSAAT challenge

Apologies  to all my teamies for this being late, I did schedule it as my parents were over for lunch and didn't leave till late so I didn't check Mr Blogger had done as he should, so slapped hands for both of us.

Wow what fab fathers day card and sporty cards you all made. Another week another and another fab challenge and one I'm sure we will have loads of entries for EMBOSSING, and time any kind wet powder or dry.
Another wonderful and generous sponsor once again too this time

with 5 promarkers as the fab prize.

This time round I was given my chioce from the wonderful  Angels at Toucan crafts and I chose  kicking leaves digital scrapbooking kit which you can find here. I had such fun with all the different elements in this kit I made 2 projects. The first I ussed this cute young boy playing in leaves which I embossed using versamark pen and clear embossing powder for extra shine. The papers in this kit also have the appearance of being embossed with a ribbled effect.

I used the same technique on the buttons that came in the kit, I must admit it felt as if I was cheating as the images were already coloured, but all the colours work so well together. I again embossed with versamark and clear embossing powder and poked holes in the buttons. I thought they looked quite effective especially when you put some together.

The card I made I thought would make a fab retirement card and to keep in with the whole theme I deided to print the journal page in the kit for the inside of the card, to keep in with the older feel of the card.
I just love the details of the watermark like effect of the leaves. The overall finished card looks like this, but have to say I haven't added a sentiment as although I had initially decide on a retirement card it would really do for a mans birthday card too afterall all men no matter what age are little boys at heart.

My second project is an index file, (said there would be more) I have been indexing all the stamps and images I have in hope that I will use all my stamps more regularly, plus if someone wants something specific I'll beable to show them the images I have for them to choose from. This was perfect for this index as I have animals and flora in it. I used another image fromt the same set and the journalling label and some of the brads and more buttons again from the set which I again embossed as before.

Now your turn lets see what you will emboss and I look forward to visiting all your wonderful projects.

I would like to enter my projects into the folowing challenges:-
