Creative Knockouts #100: Dry Embossing with SSD

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start. We are finally getting the hard cast on DS#1's arm tomorrow so really looking forward to that!

This morning I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#100) where the challenge is....Dry Embossing!  This week's sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs, and oh yes, there is a prize to be won! You KNOW how much I love SSD...I had a lot of fun creating this card:



And here is a close-up of the image so you can see all the glitter I added. I felt like her dress was just swishing and swirling....that needed a little sparkle!



I printed this beauty, and colored her with Copics. I used a Quickie Glue Pen and some of my amazing Art Institute Glitters (best glitter EVER!) to do the lines and spots for extra sparkle. I kept it pretty simple so the image would really come through (I think this is one of my favorite Sassys EVER!!). I did follow a sketch though, along with a photo inspiration. Viva la Verve July #3 and Addicted to Stamps #155: Photo Inspiration:





That's it for me today! Don't forget to swing over to the Creative Knockouts blog to link up your Outdoor-themed projects for your chance to win with Sassy Studio Designs! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!
