The Pink Elephant Challenge #268

 

We are challenging you with a:

 
"Embossing"

You just need to use some type of Embossing on your card or project.
(Embossing Paste, Heat Embossing, Embossing Folders,
 Dry Embossing, Faux Embossing, Etc.)

I just had to make a Halloween card for this weeks challenge.  My first thought was to use my go to Web embossing folder from Cuttlebug...well as you can see I ended up in a total different direction once I found this super cool embossed Bat paper in the new Halloween Basics pad from Recollections.  It's hard to see but a few of the bat images are raised and look like they are embossed.
 

The Spider Web, Sentiment and Drippy Goo border have also been embossed with Clear Gloss Embossing powder from WOW!...that stuff is AWESOME.   I love the fun texture it adds to the card.

 Supplies:
Paper: White CS (Recollections, 110Ib), Black CS (Recollections, 110Ib), Pumpkin Pie CS (SU!), Halloween Basics Pad (Recollections); Stamps: Spooky Sentiments (Reverse Confetti); Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine), VersaMark; Tools: Bat/REV-0056 Die (Quicktutz), Web/REV-0059 Die (Quickutz), Drippy Goo Border Punch (Martha Stewart); Other: Google Eyes, Black Rhinestones, Ultra Fine Shiney Black Glitter (Stampa Rosa), Clear Gloss Embossing Powder (WOW!), ATG Tape, Foam Tape
