Essentials by ELLEN -Mix it up Challenge!


I ADORE Julie Ebersole.  
Some Bloggie pals of mine all go to her classes, and
 we go as a group when we can.  
Julie has designed some phenomenal Essentials for Ellen Hutson, 
Stamps and Die Sets and I truly ADORE them.. 
Infact I have inked them up several times!  Yay!
Have you HEARD??!!!

There is also a BRAND new Ellen Essentials
Challenge --
I am linking up under the gun as I wanted to ensure ALL of 
my totally awesome supplies were linky'd up here for Ya'll!
-----You MUST go check it out!

I folded my cardstock for the base, and cut another piece of 5x4 white cardstock and ran it through the bigshot using the Hero Arts Palm with a thick layer of scrap between my cardstock and the die so that the bottom layer would only have a deep emboss and not a full die cut.  
I adhered this to the base and added a strip of glitter paper and black cardstock to the bottom edge.  The leaf impressions were scribble colored with the Versamark Pen and clear embossed.  With the blending tool I lightly inked peacock feathers in a light circular motion. 
I diecut black cardstock roses and leaves on the glitter paper.  The sentiment was black embossed on white cardstock and fussy cut and then inked it without re-inking the blending tool. 
 Final touches were adding sequins with glossy accent and layering the silver thread under the sentiment popped up on black scrapbook adhesive squares.

Edited to Add:
I just got a sweet visit from Virginia, 
(thanks MUCH!!!) 
which reminded me that
I used clear Embossing, Black Embossing
and a Die cut as an Embossing tool
