I've been seeing quite a lot of white embossing on coloured card in the online crafty-verse lately and it's a technique I was keen to try. I made this card (itself based off a card I found on Pinterest) and loved the effect and had the idea that white embossing might look lovely on a kraft-coloured card, with perhaps some delicate colouring.
So that's exactly what I did:
I thought this striking Repose image by Brigid Ashwood would be perfect for this technique and I love how she looks embossed and coloured this way.
I stamped her using Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder and then added some delicate colouring using Prismacolor pencils. I layered the image over a second piece of kraft card, which I had dry embossed with an embossing folder and then layered that onto a card blank made from blue card.
I kept the card quite simple and striking, finishing things off with some small flowers punched from blue card, decorating the centres with Enamel Accents and tiny metal cogs.
