The next challenge in the group was to try an embossing technique we hadn't done before and she had a list to chose from, I went with this one to color an embossed image with white pencil on dark cardstock. First you stamp your images with white ink, color the image in with white pencil and then emboss with gold embossing powder when done, let's just say that lining the stamps back up afterwards didn't come out perfect. It would be so much easier to use one background stamp or many different stamps that you apply to a stamp positioner that you can restamp with your versamark ink when done coloring then everything would be lined up correctly, but you know I just had to do it the hard way.... I hope that doesn't all sound too confusing, anyway on to my results.
I also added an embossed sentiment and I had some left over paper that I had applied mega flakes to so I punched out a butterfly to add to it.
It was so hard to get a good picture, the dark brown cardstock had a shine to it no matter how I would take the picture. I am not thrilled with my coloring, I was trying to get the look of texture in the petals didn't want it to be solid white, I am sure you ladies that really know how to color could do a much better job and make a beautiful card with this technique :)
