My late entry to Daring Cardmakers (Distressing) and Saturdays workout challenge Embossing



I cut this out in card using my craft robo. Its a lovely ding file from House of Lime its called butterflies. There are loads of amaing dings and fonts . Then using a clear embossing pen, I embossed each colour seperatly. I really love this effect and will be making more of these . To create the distressed looking frame. I sprinkled different embossing powder over the frame area. Including a copper a gold some silver a touch of white and verdigree.


I also have a free paper for you its one of my weirder ones. this is based on reflections

Beautiful cards Tracey - and that 'weird' paper is right up my alley. Thank you!
I managed to make metal embellies for my collage and it was a learning curve too, but I got there in the end!
