Enamel amour!

Good afternoon, well apparently it is Wednesday although my poor brain is completely jumbled and is a day behind!! I had a slight panic last night when I realised it was Tuesday and not Monday and I had to rush to get my DT card made for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. I managed to finish it time thankfully and also had the chance to play with some new goodies too.
The theme this week is
This can either be heat or dry embossing. I have to say I had so much fun doing this and discovered the most amazing product that I have fallen head over heels in love with!
The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring Stampendous Products this week, you don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them used if you have them :-)

So here is my card. I am pleased with how it turned out, especially as I was having kittens because I had forgotten to make it lol. I have used one of my new Miss Anya stamps by The Greeting Farm which only arrived a couple of days ago. It is a while since I used a Miss Anya stamp, they are always such great images for teens I think.

How do you like her Ugg boots – aren’t they fab!! I have used my Copics to colour the image apart from the flesh which I used Spectrum Noirs.

Ok, so here is my new love. Check out this embossing enamel. I thought I would just have a go on my butterfly to see what it would look like. Wow, you should see this in real life – it is stunning!!!! I added 3 layers although I don’t think I really needed that many. The incredible thing is it completely covers the base card. Both butterflies were punched out of different card – one was dark brown and the other was from my backing papers. The incredible thing is they booth look the same. I am going to use up all my old scraps now using this enamel – so pretty!!!!

Here is a plain old white flower given the enamel treatment ….. thank goodness I could find my heat gun today!! No more dull flowers for me from now on!!!
