For this month's blog hop over at Papertrey Ink, the challenge is to use black or grey cardstock. I decided to make a card with a dark grey cardstock and to combine it with this week's Make it Monday: Layered Embossing. Here is Heather's video showing the technique:
Versamark and embossed with Zing Brown Sugar embossing powder. Next, I stamped the leaf image from Harvest Berries with Versamark and embossed with Zing Blush embossing powder.
Versamarked Think Big sentiment and embossed with Zing Aqua embossing powder. Each time I did another layer, I swiped a dryer sheet to avoid any static. This works well and is my own version of an embossing buddy.
foam dots to add some dimension.
This card has already been mailed out - I needed a simple thank you card and this fit the bill. Have you tried the technique yet? I had a lot of fun with layered embossing. A few botched attempts before I succeeded ... (I tried the crackle background layered with a Pretty Peonies flower and an Everyday Button Bits sentiment but the sentiment started to 'crackle'! :P )
I was recently told about another embossing challenge here so I will enter this card there as well. Check it out here at the blog Addicted to CAS- Embossing. There are some amazing entries there and the DT made such beautiful cards!
