Emboss, Emboss, Emboss

I love Cherry Cobbler! The edible kind yes, but the SU color is so rich and well, red.  Deep, delicious red. And I think it compliments this design piece that I found in my UFO box.

This flower was from a Stamp Stack a few months ago and though it wasn't a perfect stamping, it held possiblilty.

I touched up the flower a bit with a blender pen & ink and then embossed it with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to hide the rest of the imperfections.

I used the sketch challenge from SCS this week for the layout.

I stamped the #1 panel with En Francais background stamp in Cherry Cobbler.  The #3 panel is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  It was a scrap piece and a perfect fit!  And the #2 panel is embossed with my whacked Finial Press Embossing Folder.

Having 3 Embossed panels qualifies it for the Free For All Challenge, also at SCS to use at least 2 embossing folders for texture.

I love it when I can use up some of my leftovers that are taking up far too much space!  Trouble is that I keep adding to the pile at a higher rate than I use.
