DCRU Challenge - Emboss Something

This week's Die Cuts R Us challenge was to emboss something. I was a little concerned at first because I don't have any kind of machine to do this.(just corner punches that sort of thing) But, one of the ladies had written that you could use embossing folders with a rolling pin! So that's what I did.:) It didn't turn out as well as it would have if I'd been using an actual machine, but I don't think it looks too bad.

I used the Diamonds and Dots folder from QuicKuts. The digi stamp is Ebony from The Greeting Farm(available for purchase only last weekend). I used a few Copics and a few Prismacolor markers to color her in.(my first time!) A couple of silver eyelets and some black ribbon. I cut Ebony out with an exacto knife, so, it's not perfect, but I wasn't sure how else to cut her out without having a bunch of white around her. Oh well.

Thanks for looking! I'm learning new things everyday!:)
