Challenge 20 at Artful Times

Hello and welcome to our first challenge of 2013
I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year .
 
My choice this fortnight so grab those embossing folders and use two or more on one creation of your choice
I have made a tag using 3 folder , butterfly kisses from Craft concepts on the  dress form which was inked first, then the ink  applied to the embossing folder and embossed it really made the butterflies pop.
 Cuttlebug swirls on the leaves and waterfall from Couture creations on the background both done the same way applying ink to the raised embossed detail.
I have used distress inks with brilliance inks (moonlight white and copper) which really work very  well  on top of the distress as you  can see on the background waterfall folder
 
 
Thank you for taking the time to visit and I look forward to visiting you and seeing what you come up with :)

Such a beautiful tag, Von. I see I'm going to amp up my efforts if I enter this challenge again. Lots of hard work went into your tag and it paid off.

This is gorgeous Von and you've really done your choice of theme proud! It's beautifully feminine without being twee and I just adore the flowers, leaves and dress form. Totally delicious in my opinion! Thanks for the opportunity to guest with you girls at Artful Times! Happy New Year too!
