It's Softpencil Thursday!

Hello everyone in Blogland! This week the Softpencil DT is spotlighting "Michu, His Friend, and a Paper Boat". The technique is "embossing". I used Marvy Wet Looks Embossing Markers on the polka dots, ribbon centers, part of the boat, and Michu's ears and tail. Then I tossed on some Stamp 'n Stuff embossing powder, shook off the excess, and zapped it with my heat gun until it melted. I used Provo Craft embossing folders and my Cuttlebug on the DP. The CS I used for the waves was already embossed and glittered when purchased. It is from K and Company. Purple and blue CS is  from Bazzil. Flowers are "Got Flowers?", and rhinestones are Studio 18.
Here is a closeup view of the embossing.
How would YOU like to be a Softpencil Guest Designer for the first two weeks in April? All of the details are in this post on my blog HERE. I hope you'll enter your creation. Check out the cards the very talented team members created this week. Their links are in my sidebar.
