Technique - I used chalk pencils for the soft shading of the sign. For highlighting the embossing, I tried a variation of techniques I have used before. I had just a tiny broken piece of the teal chalk I wanted - so I applied it directly to the previously embossed layer - then used a sponge to remove excess - leaving just enough color to highlight the embossing. Oh, yes, I adhered the dotted layer to the stripes, then embossed. I am happy with this result - to me it is better IRL than on the screen, however. The Spellbinder dies are new to me - Labels 5. I colored with shiny metallic Spica pens as well as chalk pencils, added ribbon, a tiny star charm and equally tiny butterfly punches.
