Technique Lover's Challenge #281

Hello everyone!!! I am hosting Monday's Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast again tonight and my challenge to you is embossing on embossing!! You can use a simple embossing technique and then dry emboss over the top, do an emboss resist first and then finish it with the dry embossing, or dry emboss over dry embossing....what ever flips you skirt!!!

Karen Barber used dry embossing over an embossing resist technique on her gorgeous CC278 Beautiful Trio of Color card...in fact, Karen's card is the inspiration for this challenge!!



My card features the simple technique of embossing the Stamp Oasis sentiment and butterfly with clear ep over black ink and then running the white layer throught the Cuttlebug with the music score folder....simple yet dramatic!! The rose image from Rubbernecker was colored with copics, cutout, and attached with dimensionals. The black silk ribbon is the only embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by......hope you join us for the TLC Challenge!!!
