Purple Happiness
Topic: Dry Embossing

I decided to go with "topics" in the header that were more descriptive of the techniques used instead of the the more general 'new work'. It's basically ALL new work at this point, as I have no more backlog to post.

I used a brass stencil that I cut for myself years ago and used the Cuttlebug to impress it into textured paper with a metallic sheen. I then used a Fiskars corner punch that also embosses. A very pale Sharpie was used to color the raised portions of both. 

White mulberry paper was torn for the backing piece. I also crumpled it before adhering. I made a ribbon slide from more of the purple paper and applied rub-on letters for the text - doesn't that lettering style fit perfectly?

Sheer purple ribbon was laced through the slide and knotted at each end. Everything was mounted to a dark purple cardstock using glue dots.
