CAS Monday - Debossing Style
So the CAS challenge this week is really about dry embossing, but I am twisted and warped and made it about debossing (with this sample that Denise posted for the challenge). I think I am technically in the clear because of how I explained it. I embossed the white card stock and then flipped it over and hit it with a brayer. So the image that shows up after brayering is the debossed flower image from the embossing folder. I left it distressed looking because that is the best kind of brayering that I can do! I tried brayering over a whole embossing folder image, but that didn't look very clean to me. I liked how it looked, but it just didn't seem to fit the CAS style. (Look out for that card coming up soon!) Instead, I carefully trimmed out one flower to mat and pop up against a neutral card stock. I opted for kraft and I think I made a good choice! Love the green and kraft together. No real place for a sentiment on my image, so I went with a small tag.
I'm keeping myself distract these days as my little one is trying to give up her nap and is frustrating me to no end!
Hope you are having a good day and thanks for stopping by!
