This is my 2nd post for today. If you're looking for the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge, please scroll down one post. :)
I was so excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer for August for the Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge blog. With a name like that, how can you go wrong?? :)
This week's sponsor is A Day for Daisies digi stamps. They have sooo many cute images. I was excited to get to work with their Little League digi. Our son used to play baseball when he was young and I can't decide if this digi reminds me of him or our grandson. Can you tell I'm missing both of them?
This week's challenge is to use wet or dry embossing. Since I'm still digging out from all the boxes due to our recent move, I chose to use dry embossing. I used two different embossing folders. One to add faux stitching around the background panel and one to add texture behind my little slugger.
I colored my little guy with copics and then fussy cut him out and popped him up on the textured panel. A simple "hello" stamp was stamped & matted and then also popped up. A few brads were added for additional texture & interest.
