Making your crafty stash work harder...

Don't you just love it when you can use a product in a different way?
To create the background for this card I Versamarked one side of an embossing folder carefully placed my card in then ran it through my big shot.
I then took the card and covered it with clear embossing powder and heated it.
I then took n ink pad and gently dragged it over the card. I then buffed it with kitchen paper to remove the ink from the embossed areas.
It is not a very precise technique but I think it creates a lovely vintage, shabby chic effect that I find appealing ☺
In real life the debossed areas have a subtle textured sheen that looks like worn enamel.
Have fun
