Do You Stack Up? Challenge #32

Hello everyone!  You are going to love this week's challenge:
Any embossing on a project will qualify!
Here are the sponsors for this week:

Sassy Studio Designs
Winner’s Choice of 4 Digis

Digis With Attitude
$10 CAD (Canadian Funds) Gift Certificate

Crop Stop
Winner’s Choice of 3 Digis

Now, on to my inspiration piece for this week:

Isn't this lady wonderful?  She is "Grandma Gertie" by Digis with Attitude.

I used Prismacolor pencils & OMS for the image. (What a surprise, huh?) 
The background was a solid color that was greatly enhanced with Distress inks.  The pink embossed piece started as a piece of print scrapbook paper that got embossed and inked with the same inks. 

Do you love that crackled heart? I thought you would!!  You can find a wonderful tutorial here.
