Mama's Boy...

Hello there,

It's September!  Where is this year going!  Anyhoo, the first of the month means we can share the start of a new challenge over on the Spectrum Noir Blog

The theme this month is 'Embossing' - it can be either wet or dry embossing and the only rule is you must use a Spectrum product in your make, that's it!  So you can go crazy with your Spectrum Noirs, Spectrum Aqua Markers, Aqua Tints or Spectrum Pencils

Here's my Design Team inspiration:

I seem to be firmly routed in the CAS style of late!  Who knew I'd love it so much!  I was pleased with how this turned out, but I am still a little unhappy that I stuck the 'smile' die cut at the top!  I think it was way better before I stuck it there, but I couldn't get it off without ruining it so there it is.

Here's what I used to make it:
Medium: Spectrum Noir markers
Skin: TN3. FS2. 9, 7, CR2
Hair: EB2, 6, 7, 8
Clothes: BGR 1, 3, 4, 5, DR7, CR7
Shoes: IG1, 5, 7, True Black

Linen Texture card
Embossing folder: Craftwell Teresa Collins Just Words A4 folder

Easy Crystals, Distress Ink, Black Momento Ink
