TRCC #10 Embossing

Welcome to another great Rubber Cafe Challenge!

This weeks Rubber Cafe challenge is embossing. When I first started stamping years ago I thought embossing was the most fascinating, fun technique! As the years have passed I've gotten away from it so it was fun to do for this challenge.

For the challenge you can do wet or dry embossing and I decided to do both on this card!
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the left side of the card. For the background I stamped the words in Peeled Paint distress ink. Then I randomly stamped the butterfly and clock with Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged on Shabby Sutters distress ink which made the embossed images "pop". The card image was embossed with bronze embossing powder.
