Dream Valley #176 Dry Embossing

Hi, guys! I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!

Now we have a new Challenge at Dream Valley and it's to use Dry Embossing on your creation.

While sorting through my embossing folders I came across one with this geometric pattern that reminds me of the patterns on metal stairs meant to give your shoes a better grip. I also needed a card for a bloke, so I dug out some silver mirror card and some metal cogs from stash. The strip of paper is from an old Authentique pad - I like how the print gives the impression of texture. The sentiment is cut with dies by Marianne from a scrap of black glitter cardstock.

Go and admire my teamies' creations, they are so varied!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

This is a wonderful EF (I have it too, one of the first C/Bug EF's I ever bought. It reminded me of the metal pattern that is on the toolboxes that some fellas have in their pickup trucks). It always makes a great embellie for a guy card, and I like the gears in the corner and the stripes of the background paper. Good job! TFS & Have a good week.
