Helping Hands

     Fridays always mean a new challenge starts at QKR Stampede and I want to remind you that we are now an "Anything Goes" challenge but we have optional twists each week if you want to use them.  Our optional twist this week is "Embossing" and it can be either heat or dry.  I chose to use one of my favorite embossing folders from Stampin' Up and a die which both cuts and embosses from Spellbinders.

     The image and the sentiment are both from QKR Stampede (Digi 13007 "Helping Hand" and Digi 13313 "Up and Running.")

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then hand cut it to a size which would fit on top of the die cut/embossed doily (Spellbinders.)  I used the SU embossing folder on some turquoise CS which I then used for the background.

     The plaid dp was a snippet I found on my desk and I wrapped it with a leftover strip of ribbon.  I added the sentiment and three of the little bows I make.  Two of them I left in the original white and the third I 'dyed' with a light blue ProMarker.  I love working with nothing but white ribbon for making those bows.  I sew them together by the dozens, toss them into my stash, and then color them with markers to match colors I've used in my design.
