Topic: Dry Embossing
I dug back into the papers my friend sent in a dry embossing swap and caame up with a great image of watches on yellow cardstock.
I sponged on Distress Ink to the raised surfaces, with more concentrated color in the lower right and fading up to the upper left.
Three of the clock elements got gears attached using tiny brads.
I selected a brown card base and then needed some contrasting element. I came up with the black and white striped paper and mounted it to the card base with mitered corners. I think it gives sort of a steampunk vibe without being overt about it.
A pre-stamped sentiment was bordered with black showing fine white lines and this was popped up on foam tape.
