TRCC #10 Emboss it!

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. Finally, I sponged on Shabby Sutters distress ink which made the embossed images "pop". The card image was embossed with bronze embossing powder. The butterfly was stamped with Shabby Shutters, fussy cut out and adhered to the card.

Great job in embossing it. I like those stuff because it gives texture and life.
