Scrap your Story -- Challenge #4

Sheesh...can you believe we are at challenge #4 already.  Seems like yesterday the first one was posted.  Anyway...your challenge this week is to ... EMBOSS!  Yep, emboss -- dry or wet.  Just give it a try.  Need some inspiration...check out what the Scrap your Story DT did with this challenge!

For me...I had this photo of Kelly in this pretty dress.  And had these GCD studio papers with the words grow, think, Be Bold...so butterflies/transformation came to mind.  I wet embossed them with Tim Holtz's distress embossing powder.  I totally different look which was perfect for these papers.  I had fun sprinkling the different colors on the butterflies!

Remember...link up your creation at the Scrap you Story blog to get a draw for the monthly prize!
