It's once again time to double-up on my challenges this week. CCC #31 is found on page #41, Rusted enamel and SSSS challenge for the week is Show Me Some Emblossing, so my project works for both. I can't tell you how it's done, but I used Stormy Sky, Shabby Shutters, and Brushed Corduroy distress inks and clear detail embossing powder. Stamping was done with black archival after the Stazon looked like crap and I had to start over! LOL I hope Linda doesn't mind, but I loved her elephant so much, I had to dig mine out and use him for the first time here and create a scene with him. I loved this technique and am having so much fun and learning so much from these challenges so again want to thank Linda as well as Simon says stamps for that!
