TTPHC #29 Embossing

So this week

our theme is Embossing 
and we are sponsored by the lovely

and Kitty is offering the winner a £10 gift certificate!

Hmm i was playing with my stash and i decided to make a card using one colour combo so i picked the YR group from my Copic collection.

Even though this week is embossing i set myself the task of using one colour group to add a little spice.

So this is what i came up with.....I used my Copics from the YR group so they ARE the same colour group but there is a whole range of cream, yellow, orange to almost a brown.  So i thought ok i will colour the complete image in those colours and use a white embossed background with a little scattered straw highlight on the flower embossing area....ok  so hopefully i had the right idea?

so to start i used a yellow card blank and then embossed a white linen piece of card with embossibilities called Revere Adoration- two sided embossing board.
I then added the coloured image that i had roughed the edges and distress with a little Tim Holtz scattered straw as it didn't look right white on white.

I then added a lovely woven orange ribbon with two flower embellishments on it and then some paper flowers in the shades i had used in my colouring and last but not least a best wished sentiment stamped onto a flower.

So technically i have used one colour the YR spectrum from Copic and i literally used all the shades in this lets see what you lovely ladies come up with? Embossing wise that is!

I am going to be entering the following challenges:
