Striking Embossed Card

I just had to play with all my new stash from the NEC so made this card last night. The background was created by coating an embossing folder with ink from my new Big and Juicy pad using a brayer. I've then outlined the embossing, added pearls to the centre of the flowers and stamped a butterfly and dragonfly. The mini easel was a bargain for £1 from Tiger!

  1. Oh wow! That's gorgeous. I would never have thought of inking the folder - I'd probably be scared the ink wouldn't come off!
