Garden Magic

Hello and welcome back to WOW Embossing Powders.  This months challenge is GARDEN!  I wish I could say I had a stunning garden full of veggies and stunning flowers but I don't. Graphic 45 have some stunning papers and one of my favourite ranges is secrete garden which I thought would perfectly for this months project.

I have used the new 6 by 4 canvas and made a wee garden scene.  I stated by covering the whole canvas with a background paper and added layers.  

I embossed the entire edge with Opaque Vanilla White  regular and inked over top with vintage photo distress ink.  To bring the vanilla white back to the top I wiped over the embossed area and removed the ink that was lying on top which left only ink in the paper areas.  

I cut my images out of paper and then turned them all over and embossed the backs of them.  I did this to stiffen up my images that I am going to be layering.  I used the same vanilla white knowing that some of the embossing powder will sneak around and show on the image which adds to the distress look. 

I then used my WOW Embossing Pen and high lighted some areas on the images. 
Like the hair ribbons on the young girl.  wings on the birds, leaves  and flower centres

After I added all my highlights I built my canvas using foam dots.
 I added a few wee flowers for a bit more dimension.

I love how this turned out and plan on making more.  Hope you have enjoyed my project and I look forward to seeing what you create for this months challenge.
