Daring Card makers challenge

The Challenge is called You're not the (em)boss of me and can be seen at Daring Cardmakers and the instructions were Embossing.Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.Using embossing powders or triple embossing.Using pre-embossed papers.
Embossing with found items.Just have fun playing!

Well funnily enough I had just purloined some scraps of very very nice embossed wallpaper, left overs from a friends decorating. The paper is embossed with a texture. I cut out one of the flowers and embossed some of the detail and shape of the flower, then highlighted the pattern on the petals with Sakura glaze pen . I embosed a fake stitching border round my card, freehand embossing. I then used a Magenta stamp and heat embossed that with carbon black embossing powder and highlighted flower with Sakura, Cut out then mounted on a leaf, cut from the wallpaper . Used stamps away corner stamps with encore gold ink and highlighted with Sakura Glaze pen.
