INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 53 - EMBOSSING

Happy Friday Friends,
Days are shorter, and chilly! we had Indian summer last weekend, so I guess we are now on our way for the white stuff... This week, Christina, our teamates and I challenged ourselves to EMBOSSING!   I love this technique and I am a good user of powders!!!!!!! 
Bon vendredi chère amies,
Les journées raccoursissent, et sont de plus en plus fraîches! Nous avons connu l'été des indiens la semaine dernière, alors nous sommes en route pour la poudre blanche!!! Cette semaine, Christina, nos compagnes et moi-même nous sommes mise au défi d'utiliser l'embossage. J'adore cette technique, et je suis une grande consommatrice de poudre!!!!!!

So, I decided embossed elements in my scene and use the contrast between the glossy finish of powders and the warm and waxy look of Prismacolors. I uses a retired Halloween paper from Creative Memories, and added versamark, on the spooky tree and the moon. I used the Spooky tree from Magnolia (I confess inverting the image). Across my scene, I colored the cute fence with pumpkins (digi from Make it crafty), and embossed the fence with Distess powders to give an old finish. I so wished I had purchased the black sooth powder for the tree... I colored Scarecrow Tilda (that I really did not like when she got out), but I have to say I just loved coloring her, and creating this Halloween scene for her, as if she is in disguise!!!!!! I would generously treat this cutie on Halloween night!  To my flower cluster, I added a little beaded spray, a new style I just tried... it will have to be improved a bit somewhat, but it brings a cute detail. Tell me what you think...

J'ai donc décidé d'embosser les éléments de ma scène d'halloween, et d'utiliser le conraste entre le fini luisant de cette technique et la chaleur des Prismacolor. J,ai joué avec des papiers de Creative Memories, retirés depuis un bout, j'ai enduit l'arre et la lune de versamark, puis, j'ai ajouté la poudre noire, et la poudre  holographique. Tilda s'est déguisée en épouvantail! et je crois bien qu'elle est le plus joli de tous les épouventails. J,ai ajouté l'arbre Spooky au décor, et  oui, l'image est inversée volontairement! La clôture et les citrouilles qui décorent ma scène sont une image digitale, imprimée sur bristol, et coloriée avec les prisma, j'ai ajouté sur les planches de la clôture cettemerveilleuse poudre Distress, qui a l'effet granuleux... Je regrette tellement de ne pas avoir acheté la noire lors de ma dernière visite chez Scrapbook ta vie. J'ai aussi fabriqué une petite gerbe en perles tubulaires, qui fera partie d'un petit tutoriel... à suivre après notre journée de filles de samedi! Car il me faut améliorer un peu la technique, celui-ci étant mon prototype. Dites moi ce que vous en pensez..





I made a close up of sweet Tilda, perhaps I wanted her to forgive me... I hated that image so much when it got out, my friend Cathy-Lynn sent me an image, and said color her... So I did. and now I love her! Thanks Cathy.
J,ai voulu me faire pardonner par Tilda, alors j'ai fait un gros plan de cette image, lorsque cette étampe est sortie, je la détestais... Mon amie Cathy Lynn m,en a fait parvenir une image imprimée, et m'a dit, colore la,tu verras... maintenant, je crois que cette Tilda est vraiment mignonne. Merci Cathy.





That is it for me today, thank you for stopping by and please take a moment to visit my friends and see their outstanding creations.
Merci de votre visite, c'est tout pour moi aujourd'hui... Prenez un moment et visitez mes amies, elles auront certainement de quoi vous inspirez.

Absolutely delightful my friend! I love that bat and the beads that you used. The leaf on the left hand side looks like a spider web. The scene is fantastic as is all your embellishments. I love watching you create.

J'aime beaucoup utiliser le mauve et le noir pour l'Halloween. Je trouve que sa sort du orange habituelle. C'était vraiment une bonne idée d'embosser le décors. L'effet est très bien réussit. Tu as toujours de bonnes idées mais surtout, tu nous en donne...Mais disons une carte d'Halloween, tu m'as tout de suite charmé car je crois que c'est ma fête préférée...Bravo pour ta carte.

Now, I must admit that this one me fait peur a little bit...hehe; I think it's one of those Tildas I really don't like. ell, I guess it's all about until you've colored her. Since I don't have her and don't intend to...lol... I jst have to say I love everything about your card; the flowers, the colors, it's all fantastic but I have to admit I have reservations towards this little Tilda. And I just can't hope being franc:)
