Elegant embossing PTW CHALLENGE

EDTITED TO SAY PICCIE NOW ON...
This week at Papertake weekly the theme is as the above title states, you can use dry embossing or wet embossing the choice is yours, There is a fab prize up for grabs so come on crafters get embossing....

For mine, I have been inspired by Paula pascual, she used this in her recent class at Craftsulove, which I wasn't able to get to... I luv it sooo much and very elegant the cards were too...

So after speaking with Paula, I think I have remembered all the instructions she told me....

I run a chipboard flower through the cuttlebug embossing folder, inked it with versamark, and dabbed different colours of perfect pearls, PINK MAUVE AND GREEN all over with a brush in a swirly motion.... I then punched a hole in the centre and attached several flowers using a brad, I then made a scallop border with my newly purchased 12 inch quickutz cookie cutter which I cut with my cuttlebug and punched holes with a crop a dile in each scallop... All these products you can get at CRAFTSULOVE.....

OH GAWD NOW BLOGGER WON'T LET ME ATTACH A PICCIE.......
