Open Minded Crafting Fun-Tiffany Playing Violin

Hello and Welcome! I'm so glad your visiting for my first post on the Design Team at Open Minded Crafting Fun. I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase a wonderful digi image by Milk Coffee. You can find the link to the image at the bottom if this post under the products heading. For this challenge we made a project using any new technique to us.

So...what's my new technique...I've never used my embossing folders for small circle embellishments on a layout before. I typically use an embossing folder for a background on a card or to emboss a full pieced Cricut cut out but here I used my circle punch and embossed the circles.

Here's a close up of the wonderful image and the embossed circle embellishments.

These are the Copic markers I used

I used this sketch for inspiration

Fiskers ribbon punch
Martha Stewart Border punch Eyelet Lace
Darice Sweet Music embossing folder
Bazill carstock
Recollections DP
DCWV The Green Stack
pink ribbon by JoAnn Fabrics
EK success 1 1/4 circle punch
embroidery thread
Swirl cut from Home Decor Cricut Cartridge

This is totally gorgeous! I really love the idea of the embossing folder for small circles. I have never used them in that fashion either! But it really does make a great embellishment. So fun that your creation is a scrapbook page!!! Love the way you have colored the image as well.
