A Dry Embossed Rose

Hi every one,
This is the second post today.

Here is a card I have made for my mums birthday.

I have used a brass stencil but before I placed the stencil on to the card stock I applied a fluid chalk to the back of the stencil, just on and around the image.

I then placed it on the card and embossed in the normal way. You then end up with a shadow around the rose.

I then used a dauber to apply fluid chalk around the edge of the card.
Tie a ribbon around the rose and mat the image onto another piece of the same card.

I used card stock from DCWV The Far East stack for a backing. I used the same fluid chalk around the edge .

I coloured gold peeloff and gems with a brown permanent marker to tie it all together.

I haven't seen this done before, I was just experimenting with my brass stencils and the idea just came to me and I wondered what it would look like. I really like the affect I got. Let me know what you think.

Why not give it a go your self

Happy crafting
Regards Sue.
