Stamping Sensations embossing and texture

Good morning and welcome! It is the first Sunday of May and time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations. Our challenge this month is to use Embossing and Texture and our Sponsors are Tonic Studios. For my card this month I used our lovely Ruth's stamps from the Tonic Pick of the Bunch Rudbeckia stamp set, along with the Tonic simplicity doily square die. I coloured the flower with promarkers and dusted with Tea Dye distress ink. The dry embossing was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and again dusted with tea dye DI. I added a little bit of stickles to the butterfly and the flower centre.
Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely creations from my teamies and find out how to enter.
There is an awesome prize from Tonic too. Feast your eyes on this!
 Thanks for looking!


  1. You have used such a pretty shade for the flower and butterfly Sally and it stands out beautifully against the embossed panels.

    Hope you have a lovely Sunday walk with some sunshine.

  4. The 'fussiness' of the trellis square & the embossed background are lovely foils for the elegant beauty of the flower & butterfly. Brilliant for all kinds of occasions - even those difficult Sympathy cards.
