Topic: Dry Embossing
The sanding of shiny embossing has worked so well I used it again for the card today.
This one was a snowy village embossed on silver. There was so much open space I knew I couldn't restrict the sanding to the raised areas so I intentially went into the background with the tool. I sanded on both the vertical and the horizontal to create a crosshatched look.
I colored in the houses and trees with pastel alcohol markers for a low-key look.
I left the chimney smoke and the snow plain and added just a hint of color as a shadow on the roofs so they would look snow-covered.
This may get a sentiment stamped in Staz-On on the snowy ground.
