Virginia's View Challenge #13

 Here is the same post over Virginia's View Challenge. I re-post it here for your viewing convenience.

Welcome to the new March Challenge! This challenge is a special one...
Can you believe that Virginia's View Challenge blog turns ONE YEAR OLD today?

When I started this challenge, I didn't plan to go on this long because it is quite a commitment! Seeking best guest designers, commenting, posting updates and more commenting, choosing Top 10  Favorites...the tasks can be daunting!
But, with the amazing support and the avid participation, YOU make this all possible! 
For our 13th challenge, We are going rekindle the old flame in stamping. As you may have experienced, you fall in love in stamping because embossing rocks!
Well, let's get back to the basics--Embossing.

All Things Embossed ( please choose at least one)
~project using embossing powder in a creative way
~multiple embossing
~dry embossing with embossing folders (or dies or household objects, get creative). You can see dry embossing with a stencil (sample here)
~de-bossing (helpful link: here)
~any kind of embossing that you like to share

Here is my take on embossing (using two different bold embossing powder)
so very thankful

Here is a close-up

Isn't embossing FABULOUS!!?

Yay, happy birthday to Virginia's View!! What a commitment you've made to your initiative. I really can't imagine the amount of work it takes, especially with all the thought and effort you put into your challenges (samples, guest designers, ideas, techniques, you name it). Thank you, Virginia for being such a wonderful hostess for our community : )
