It is that time of week again when we get to announce the new challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week we are hosting a technique challenge and looking for projects that feature embossing folders for the background.
I really tried some different techniques today along with my embossed background. I started with some Distress Resist spray that had set on some watercolor paper. Then I pulled out my distress Oxide Sprays in both Iced Spruce and Fossilized Amber and strayed it so it blend over each other. Then using a triangular stencil, I added some water and dabbed away the excess water pulling away some of the ink.
I then pulled out my embossing folder and dry embossed vertical stripes across the card. I love how subtle the stripes came out over the ink.
I trimmed up the card to turn it into a shaker card and added some Sparkle Bend sequins into the opening. I also stamped a fun sentiment and some holiday lights onto the card.
I can’t wait to see how you dry emboss your card this week. Until then, happy crafting.
