VIDEO: Embossing, Prismacolors, & Finding Bigfoot

Good morning!  Welcome back to another project post and video.  Today I am creating an entry for the current Lawnscaping Challenge #112: Embossing.  I was quite inspired by this one and did some heat embossing and dug into my collection of embossing folders and dry embossed the elements of this little scene.
 
 
All of the elements for this card were colored using Prismacolor pencils on kraft or colored cardstock.  I love the vibrant color that this technique provides.  Usually when I used this form of coloring I'm creating a one-layer card so it was fun to try something new and fussy cut all of these elements out of the kraft. 


I used about four stamp sets and two die sets from Lawn Fawn for this scene.  I love to combine all of their amazingly cute images to add complexity and depth to my projects.  I have listed all of the supplies I used below if you're interested.  It's also fun to take the stamps and do something with them that maybe wasn't the original intent of the stamp.  For example,  I used the yeti from the Yeti, Set, Go stamp set and made him Bigfoot.  I'm up in the Pacific Northwest and I just felt this was the most appropriate use of this little guy.

Thanks for stopping by for this Lawnscaping Challenge entry!  You can see a full tutorial in the video below as well as a list of all the supplies if you keep on scrolling.  I'll be back soon with another entry that I put together using the leftover elements from this card . . . always a great way to stretch your supplies!  See you soon!  Bye!
