Pink Wishing Well

Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC570) turned out to be a REAL challenge! We are supposed to emboss using a stencil & though the sandwiches were given for different machines, my first attempt was a disaster! It shredded the card stock & worse, it broke the plastic stencil into a multitude of pieces. Oh well! So I used something I knew would work, because I’ve done many times…I used a piece of plastic canvas (from the cross stitch section) to emboss. These plastic & mesh canvases are much tougher than stencils & are also much more flexible.

I had a 6″ round piece of plastic canvas & to make it fit Ol’ Red, I cut it in half, misted the heavy card stock lightly, then embossed it onto the card stock.  I like how it mimics the round stacked rocks of the well. I went with some different colors for the well then die cut it w/ a Double Stitched Circle. The outer ring was colored to match & put back. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
