Lawnscaping Challenge# 34 - Embossing

Hello!!  It is time for another fun challenge over at Lawnscaping!  This time it is all about embossing.  First, let me say, I am obsessed with Instagram - and I thought it would be a cute idea to turn the polaroid from Lawn Fawn's "Say Cheese" into an Instagram camera.  So - I did a few things by hand ( which is amazing within itself - I can't draw to save my life).  I first drew the colorful Instagram lines on the camera.  Then, I made my own mini polaroid.  This may have been done before - I am not sure, but I think its so stinkin' cute!!















I created a "love bird" scene with the birds from "Gnome Sweet Gnome", added the tiny little heart from " Plus One" and my sentiment comes from "Grand Greetings".  I did two types of embossing.  I did dry embossing, but with a twist.  I inked up my tiny hearts embossing folder with "Love Letter" Memento Ink, and then dry embossed my card stock.  I heat embossed both my camera, and my little birdies.  For dimension, I added pop dots to both my camera/polaroid, and my sentiment.  I hope you all think its as cute as I do!!
