E is for Embossing - Scrapology September Challenge - Pause for Thought...

Well another months challenge has arrived, our featured scraplift is by Kelly Goree, hop over to Scrapology to find out more...

I have used Basic Grey Kioshi papers, element stickers and alphabet.
I cut a 3" strip of the stripey paper and 10" of the floral then overlapped onto the stripes to create the 12x12" page. A panel 6.5 x 9" was cut from the pale green and added to the R/H side and a 4x12" of the lilac positioned across the lower half. The photograph was cut to 5.5 x 4.75" and double mounted.

The borders are from the elements sheet along with the bird and butterflies which were stuck onto card and mounted on 3d foam pads.
I cut a floral panel from another sheet which I added the the top of the lilac strip and then dry-embossed to enhance the leaves and flowers - had to add some stickles at this point too and a couple of buttons from my stash!
Below is a close-up. 

I added glossy accents to the butterflies bodies and faux stitching around the edges.

This is the sketch we worked from...

And the original layout by Kelly.

Why not take a look at the Scrapology blog to find out more about Kelly and see the other DT entries.
Closing date is the 5th October and a fab prize will be on offer for the winner.
