A Winner and some 3D Embossing

Hello Friends

I posted a small Give-away a week ago HERE.  Thank you so much for all your comments!  Unfortunately, I can't do that Random Number thingy so I had to resort to pen and paper..... after carefully putting them in a box .....and picking one at random...

 the Winner is

That big flower looks amazing and I always love the combination of red and turquoise. I must have been checking out your blog for at least 4 years - some great projects over the years. Elaine xx

Congratulations Elaine, please send me your address to the email address in my Profile.


I thought I would share a new project with you today too.  I have been playing with the
new Tim Holtz 3D Embossing Folders, mainly just to see how they fare.  I have to say, they are  pretty impressive!

I do love working with leather so I just had to try this Botanical 3D folder out, it was a gift from a very dear friend.  My finished project is an embossed red leather handmade watercolour journal:

And the beautiful Embossing Folder is by Tim Holtz (3-D Texture Fades - Botanical (Sizzix 662716), I really could not believe how wonderfully it embossed the 2mm thick leather!  The pattern looks and feels so beautifully tactile!
I also tried it with a piece of my precious stash of Grunge Paper, some mount board and also some faux metal, with the same fabulous results, but that's for another post....

Thanks so much for your visit, hope to see you again soon.

Hugs, Anne xx
