MORE BACKGROUND EMBOSSING

I really liked how the background embossing looked on my card from the other day, so decided to give it a whirl with the HA hibiscus stamp.



Stamped the second layer of the smaller flower in the set with HA white embossing powder - also used the stamen and the leaves to fill in gaps - I'm still not very good at this background stamping - need to keep practicing!!!  Added some more flowers colored in various blues and the HA sentiment (also embossed).  Used a black glaze pen on the stamens of the flowers to give them more depth.  The card base is a soft grey which I think works particularly well with the white embossing.

The challenge theme at A Blog Named Hero this month is "embossing" and there is still time to enter here

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.
