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!

  11. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out
