Are you looking at the background paper and wondering, "how'd she do that"?
I watched a how-to on Mel Stamps' blog you can take a look at here.
She's soooo creative!
I've seen the same process done by others lately, too.
I'll walk ya through the how-to process. ;)
- first you dry emboss your B&T paper or Cardstock ( I ran my B&T through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder)
- then you ink up your brayer with Versamark ink and run it over the raised parts of your dry embossed piece
- next you sprinkle clear embossing powder over it, tap off the excess, and then heat set the embossing powder
- take a sponge and ink (I used Black ink), and rub the ink into the paper, and then take a kleenex or paper towel and lightly rub off the ink that doesn't stick to the clear embossed areas
I hope you enjoyed my card.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in Canada!
And happy creating! :)
