TSG90 - Wet Embossed Pup

It's challenge time over at the TSG blog and Corinna has challenged us to use wet embossing this week. Pull out your heat gun along with some embossing powders and get busy! You can emboss a solid image on your creation, emboss an outlined image and watercolor it, or showcase another wet embossing technique…your choices are endless!

For my card, I chose to just emboss my line art image so that I could water colour it with my tombows and a water brush. I shaded him a little to look dimensional and used some really fun papers that I picked up on my Saturday trip to the scrapbook stores with Angela. Unfortunately, I'm not sure of who actually makes these papers because they were cut into 6" squares and packaged with some coordinating papers without labels.

As with any of our There She Goes challenges, you could be eligible to win a gift certificate to the TSG store and here is how: you are to create a card that utilizes wet embossing techniques, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Jan 24th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

And of course you do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG90 so we can check out your beautiful work!
