Bloggers Challenge 149

This weeks Bloggers Challenge is to use some kind of embossing in our artwork. In my piece, I created the background using Shimmer Sheetz dry embossed in a Cuttlebug folder. The embossing is highlighted with Stazon. In real life, the background has deep cright colors of green, purple, and blue. It's a shiny mylar material so it doesn't scan true to life. Alice is also heat embossed and then colored with Copics. The stamps are from Artistic Outpost.
