We are Neet and Wendy and we would like to welcome you to our fortnightly challenge, ‘Artful Times’, where we are offering a variety of challenges to inspire you to create in whichever style or medium of crafting you enjoy. You never know, we might even inspire you to create something out of your comfort zone and try out something new.

Yes like all challenge sites we have rules and guidelines. We hope you will read and follow them, we have Oyster Stamps as our sponsor, and of course, a winner and runner up will be chosen each month. We may also have the occasional guest designer.

Challenge 20 - Get those Embossing Folders Out

Here we are at the start of a new year and a new challenge and hoping you are all well and recovered from the festivities.

Did you get any new toys to play with ? well if you did you might like to show them off with this challenge which is to use 2 or more embossing folders and if you have some spending money then there are lots to choose from at Oyster Stamps and who knows - follow the rules and you could win a £10 voucher.

We are very fortunate this fortnight to have Julia as a guest designer, here is her tag and you can read all about how she made it with more than one embossing folder if you follow the link above.

Thank you Julia

Here is mine - how many embossing folders can you spot?

 Neet was totally stumped with my original suggestion of using several embossing folders and she could not get her head around it at all.  Then inspiration struck, thanks to a blog she visited so here is her idea using several folders.

Now what will you all come up with?

Fab theme. I do so love my embossing folders but I do tend to stick to one so this will hopefully open up some more possibilities. Off to emboss.........
