It is that time again....A new Challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday.
This weeks challenge is to make a Birthday LO with any kind of Embossing.
My nephew is turning 1 in July and he just LOVES monkeys.
This 12 x 12 LO was made just for him and once he has his birthday I will put the pictures in and give it to my sister.
So I used paper from Recollection-I believe-It came from Michael's and was purchased a while ago for this purpose..to make something cute for my little nephew.
I punched 2" circles and used 1 of my favorite tools..the cuttlebug to emboss each circle with the herringbone folder. They were all inked with coffee bean pigment ink.
On another of my shopping quests I found Tim Holtz grunge board letters on clearance. They came in handy for this. I inked them all with fire brick, frayed burlap and vintage photo. It really brought out the embossed stripes that were already on them.
They were placed on foam dots for extra dimensions.
I put 2 photo mats on this. Both are 4 x6 mats and both were embossed with the Swiss dots folder.
The monkey was a svg file I recently found and he just seemed to fit so nicely in this space.
I am really happy with the way this LO turned out. I hope my sister likes it also!
So now that you have seen my project, make sure you head over to the Whimsical Wednesday blog to see the other DT's projects and to link your birthday LO.
Good Luck and thanks for stopping by. Hope you play along with us this week.
Remember you have 2 full weeks to participate :)
