Today I'm sharing a card with you that uses Imagination Crafts Grunge elements stencil.
I ran the stencil through my die cutting/embossing machine to emboss the design.
You will need to check the correct sandwich for your particular machine.
I used smooth stamping card for this.
I trimmed the card once finished.
I then replaced the stencil, it's a good idea to hold in place with a low tac tape.
I've tried to show in the picture how this technique gives extra dimension.
Next I used an 8 x 8 square card blank and without embossing this time, randomly stenciled the design again with my brush but using Adirondack stonewashed
(40% off in the Mega Sale)
I think you'll see the difference between the embossed and flat images.
With the stencil in place for the butterfly, I added a touch of
Imagination Crafts sparkle medium in diamond using my finger.
I finished off with a couple of Craftwork cards candi (40% off in the Mega Sale)
Rather than mounting the main design in a formal way I put the second mat layer at an angle.
Well that's it from me for today,
Many thanks for visiting the blog and for the lovely feedback and comments you leave for us.
