Bloggers Challenge is embossing. That's one of my favorite things to do whether it is heat embossing or embossing folder embossing. I love texture on a card. My card also works with the Grungy Monday challenge (Rock Candy Stickles), the Created by Hand challenge (ovals/brads) and Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes.
My card started with two stamps. The sentiment stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs. The image is a floral background stamp from Chapel Road Artstamps. The sentiment was heat embossed with clear embossing powder and the panel was colored with tattered rose distress ink. The embossing serves as a resist. The flowers were embossed with Ranger's California Stucco Embossing Antiquities powder. Both panels were die cut into an oval shape and layered on a scalloped oval panel. I used an EK Success border punch for the ribbon of ovals. The background panel is embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. I used Rock Candy Stickles to add a distressed glitter on the background embossing, on the ovals ribbon, and on the frame around the main ovals.
