The first clue will be on Candy’s blog. 

The Technique Lover’s Challenge on SCS today was to dry emboss on vellum.  I thought flowers, etc but finally decided to dry emboss the hat, holster and boots on the little cowboy image.  I stamped him with Black Brilliance and heat dried.  I turned the image, ran wax paper over the image and stylus and dry embossed the full areas. I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I did a background sheet for behind the cowboy and hand sketched a fence and added sage brush from the Cowboy collection.  I colored all the images on the back panel with Copic markers as well.  The vellum didn’t let as much of the scene show up in the background so I went over the images a little with Copic’s on the vellum just to add some punch. OK…I know I should have thought flowers for this as a nice full blossom would have been so pretty dry embossed.  Well….that would have been better but not as challenging to me.  What a fun image.  Check out this link to Linda Black’s blog for a great picture tutorial on how this technique is done.
