Embossed background

In the Summer I bought this Hobby craft 'Paws' Background stamp with a  view to making it into an embossed background. Today I finally got around to having a go...


I inked up the stamp with Versamark and tried it with clear embossing powder plus distress ink afterwards and then with opaque embossing powder. In the end I used parts of both in the resulting card...


This card was based on the following sketch


I used Bugaboo's digi  'Dogtopper', 
and a sentiment stamp from Inkadinkadoo (inked in both chocolate and red).

I am linking this to


ABC Christmas - C is for chocolate creams - all those 'chocolate' papers, inks and Promarkers!


Catch the Bug February Bingo - heart/embossing/sentiment


Happy Crafting!
