Amber's Crafts & Stuff #18 Embossing.

A nice simple challenge for us this week at Amber's...Embossing. So show us your embossing techniques, whether that's dry or wet embossing, what do you like to do? You can see what the rest of the Crafting Pals did this week here. The winner this week will be invited to join us as Guest Designer during an upcoming challenge, we love to have you with us.
 I've gone with my beloved House Mouse again, coloured with a mix of blendable and watercolour pencils.  I so used to love those sweets/candy, when I was a kid.  I used to look for the not so lovingly worded ones to give to my brothers lol. 

This embossing folder is a new one I have,  by Tim Holtz, and my seam binding  and dew drops are from The Ribbon Girl. My die-cut label is cuttlebug. The cardstock and the sheet of white mulberry paper overlaying the card is from stash and the pin is handmade by little ol' me.

Linda, this is adorable. I love the mice also, although I don't own many. I don't have this one or the last one you used. If you're ever sending anything this way, I wouldn't mind a stamped image or two. Hugs, dj

How cute is that!!! So sweet! I love mice, too - I´m not afraid of real mice - I only hate the spiders in the cellar... nevertheless I´m happy that all the cute mice are outside in the garden and NOT in the house!
