MAGICAL MONDAY - Emboss (heat or dry) or Score somthing

The special person to receive the random drawing prize for participating in last weeks challenge is:
Lisa Lorigan

Please send me your address at magicintheair@att.net so I can get this out to you. CONGRATS and ENJOY!

I was always one of those kids that loved to doodle. Through my school years my notebooks would be filled with oodles of doodles and to this day I still love to just doodle. This flower is kind of a doodle for me and I really love that this flower can be used so many different ways. The designers really rocked this image with elegant, contemporary, fun and colorful designs. This image "Deco Flower" really is quite versatile. So, make sure you snag it and come play along this week with the challenge, we loved to see just how you use it!

I would really love to see the numbers grow in the challenge links to make me believe that this blog is worth the upkeep and the great work that is required by all the designers as well. PLEASE leave me and the team a message if you snag a free image, tell us what you think, I really am looking for feedback as well! A special THANKS for all who have taken the time to actually participate in the past challenges and/or left me/us a message in past posts! Leaving some lovin's is really a great thing! :O)

(C) "Deco Flower"
(left click, then right click "save as" the larger image)

("Deco Flower" is no longer available for free... I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digital form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

This weeks challenge comes to us from Leigh Anne. She would like to see you heat or dry emboss something on your card. If you don't have the tools to heat or dry emboss, score some lines, a pattern or be creative with some type of scoring. You can use the tool that comes with rub-ons to score with if you have one of those or something that has a rounded head of some sort.

The prize for this week’s random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back here is:

Now for the oh so talented...

Thanks for the lovely flower image. I did 'snag' last week's cute lion/mouse image as well. I just didn't get the chance to get creative with it.

Esther Asbury said...

I love coming here every Monday to see/snag a new image from your site! I don't always have time to make something right away, but I love having a file of beautiful images to pick from when occasions arise! Also enjoy seeing the DT's creations --- it sparks my own ideas!
Thanks for all the great images, and here's my vote to continue this great site!

This is such a wonderful flower you've drawn, Nina, and I love seeing the many different ways that the DT used it. It's so fun to have a new image and a challenge to use it with each week, and I thank you for the effort you put in each week. I'm sure the blog traffic is just going to keep growing as word gets out! Hugs!!

Thank you Nina, (and Curt, I followed your link here) for sharing the beautiful Deco Flower. This is my first digital image, and I never would have tried to do one, had you not offered the wonderful tutorial and free image. I left a shout out for you on my blog, I really appreciate you sharing not only the image, but the knowledge to use it. ~Diane DCRU DT

Blog hopping and landed here, and what a lovely surprise. I have snagged the flower, become a follower and put your blog in my favourites. Thank you so much, what a delightful find.

Unknown said...

I love this flower, it's gorgeous, I've made a card & put the link to it on Mr Linky, but I totally forgot about the embossing/scoring part, so it probably won't qualify for the challenge, but loved making the card anyway.

Thanks so much

Hi Nina,
What a fab image - I love it.
I have left my card with Mr Linky and I hope you like it - the sentiment as you will see is my bit of embossing on this one.

Loved the wonderful DT cards and thanks so much for sharing the Deco Flower!  I just got my card uploaded and came to add my link, but I must be too late or Mr. Linky just doesn't like me.  :)
