I thought some embossing might be good this month, and used two totally different styles of cards to demonstrate the technique.
The first was an aged, distressed card, where the flowers were stamped with versamark and then ink, heat embossed and painted with either an aqua painter or blender pen.

Ink : Versamark, not quite navy, chocolate chip
Accessories : Basic pearls, 1-8 taffeta rinnon in early espresso

The second card was a very CAS Christmas ornament card and matching tag. I love how iridescent ice makes the ornaments sparkle. Such an easy, and yet effective technique
