Woohoo! It's our second challenge over at My Unity Place
and it's all about embossing! 
  it was a challenge for me, 
a break from my normal stuck in a rut stamping and I loved it!
 Our new two week long challenge is to create something embossed
it can be with folders, 
your score pal or good old fashioned heat embossing
embossing is the only rule :)
for my samples I used the new May Kit of the Month!

This first card uses the emboss resist.  I heat embossed my image with clear embossing powder and then added ink to the top.  to get the darkest parts, I used my Tim Holtz Walnut Stain.

My next card is a CAS card where I used an embossing folder and embossed the entire card front.  I just folded the card closed, with the back of the card outside the folder, and then ran through my cuttlebug
 So if you haven't joined My Unity Place..come on over and sign up!  We would love to have you!
oh, and two random participants with win and Itty Bitty!! woohoo!!
