The New Herringbone Folder is "just my style!!"



This week at cuttlebug challenge we are featuring the new herringbone embossing folder as part of our countdown to CHA, Maggie our fearless leader gave the DT this incredible sketch to work with.I hope you will play along with this weeks sketch challenge that is being sponsored by
2 red bananas ... you could win some goodies! I know you all like free goodies!!
I have had this stamp set from SU for a long time but this is the very first time it has ever seen ink. I stamped two dresses onto watercolor paper and used re inkers to color them , and used dimensionals to make the dress really "come alive" I was inspired by the gorgeous designer series paper that has the new in colors from SU, can you see how amazing it looks embossed with the herringbone folder and sanded lightly?? This sketch has SO many possibilities, that you can do virtually anything with it. I needed to dust off the nesties and put them to work as they were feeling neglected :) {shame on me}

I couldn't stop at a water colored dress I needed a purse too, if you are like me the MOST important item in my wardrobe is a handbag {or a dozen or 2}....what ? I don't have a problem I can stop anytime I want, I just like purses...A lot :0

I have several purse templates that I copied from Making memories, this was a labor of love and the embossed paper is so fantastic!!
Please take a trip over to CCB and check out what the DT has created for your eyes to behold, some truly amazing projects!!
