Linda's Scramble on flickr

Yesterday was so much fun - Linda hosted a scramble in the hero Arts flickr group. Its one of my favorite things to do. Last month I messed up and missed it by a day, this time I  put it in my calendar.....
The theme was  Embossing Technique - either embossing with powder or an embossing folder or other dry embossing. You could even do that faux embossing using die cuts as Shari showed on the HA Blog - see it here - or use a score tool to get an embossed effect. first I had some trouble with that - I tried to guess what we would do thinking Easter is coming and who couldn't use an Easter card.....So it took me a while to come up with something. Being totally stuck on Easter I made an Easter card anyhow.



I used a Sizzix embossing folder, the stamps are Hero Arts from the April set Cl051, little dots of Perfect Pearls and Stickles

Then I went back to the scramble to see what everybody else is doing - and some people already had posted 3 - yes, THREE cards..... So back I went for a quickie card, just coloring the embossing folder with Copics. Its not perfect - normally I would spend just a little more time on it, but I did not have that luxury.....



Materials: Cuttlebug embossing folder - colored with Copics, sentiment Hero Arts - Sending Smiles Messages


And that's how I did it:
I lined up a ruler along the "valleys" of the embossing folder and in (mostly) one stroke went along the ruler with the Copic marker - once I did all those lines I trimmed of the messy edges and mounted it on a white cardstock base.

I linked this card up with the Challenges 4 everybody - Anything goes

OMG - who knew such a simple idea of colouring the embossed stripes could end up with such a STUNNING card! LOVE!

Love your cards, Cornelia. Those easter card is super cute, great embossing and that colorful lines on embossed panel is super clever. :-)

Zwei ganz tolle Karten hast du da gemacht! Auf der Osterkarte finde ich, dass die kleinen Pünktchen unter dem Text ein sehr schönes Highlight sind. Der geprägte Hintergrund ergibt eine prima Struktur und passt super zum Ganzen!
Die zweite erinnert mich an einen Lolli, mit diesen vielen bunten Farben. Einfach prächtig!!

Liebe Cornelia, ich habe schon gesehen, dass du so viele wunderbare Sachen gemacht hast aber leider hatte ich in den letzten Tagen nicht sehr viel Zeit zum Bloggen (und kommentieren). :-(

Hast du schon bemerkt, dass es bei mir etwas für dich gibt? Wenn nicht, dann schau mal vorbei!

GLG Rosi

Uhi, die erste Osterkarte ist fertig :-). Die sieht echt super aus, ganz einfach aber sehr beeindruckend.

Ich muss mich am Wochenende auch endlich an die Osterkarten machen, sonst wird das nichts mehr.

Liebe Grüße aus Regensburg

I absolutely love both these cards! Can't believe you did them for a scramble! I didn't know you could ink an embossing folder with COPICS--that would be something even a coloring challenged gal, like me, could do--LOL! Do they wash off with water?
