All Things Embossed

I can't stop embossing my latest favourite background stamp- the Sketched Roses stamp from Impression Obsession. SO pretty! I knew this would fit with Virginia's View Challenge #13- All Things Embossed

Embossing was one of the first things I fell in love with about cardmaking. Oh the magic of that powder puffing up and becoming bold and shiny. Ooooooo. 

For this card, I heat embossed the Sketched Roses background in white on vellum, and coloured the backside of the vellum with bright Copic markers. Why couldn't I have just embossed on white cardstock and coloured them in regularly? That would have worked just fine but as usual the card went a different direction than what I had envisioned. Also, it gives a nice soft look that the Copics wouldn't have given straight on regular cardstock. AND I didn't have to be fussy and careful about not colouring over top the white embossed areas. :) A bold sentiment stamped in black finished it off. 

Thanks for stopping in today and have fun embossing! Don't forget to play along with Virginia's View
