Embossing Challenge Card

The Creative Cuttlebuggers Yahoo group has a monthly challenge. The challenge for February is "Double Embossing." I thought it looked interesting, so I gave it a try.

First, I inked up a Stampin' Up!/Sizzix embossing folder with yellow ink and embossed. Then I inked up a Darice Daisy folder with blue and embossed over the yellow. That pretty much flattens the first embossing, but of course, leaves the inked color. I stamped the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink) on a scrap of white and ran it through the first embossing folder, which still had a bit of yellow left on. I just might have to do this again:)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Wow! I've never done this before but I want to give it a try now. I love how your card turned out. It's very pretty. Thank you for sharing! It's a good day to stay inside here in Minnesota with the cold temps back.

I haven't gotten around to trying the challenge even though I had good intentions. I am recuperating from shoveling all the blizzard snow drifts.

Well, now, that is very interesting! It really makes the daisies stand out, almost as if they were cut out and glued on. Wow! I still have not had luck with inking my embossing folders. I never get such good coverage.
