Topic: Dry Embossing
This is probably my least favorite of all the cards I've made in a long time.
I started with the brass stencil in the Cuttlebug and then tapped an inkpad onto the raised areas. Although I found two papers that carried the color theme, they don't have enough contrase and the pattern of the checked paper is too large.
After wrestling with this for quite a while I finally decided to add the ribbon to give it some boundaries and did some line-work around the spotted papers.
It still wasn't enough so I added gold peel-off corners and a gold greeting.
I think I basically wasted a lot of supplies just trying to make the embossed panel work - and it was made from a scrap in the first place!
Whadda ya think? Trash or treasure?
