I had used Lisa Horton's lovely Roses embossing folder with a piece of white card and had also saved the outside of a die cut I'd used earlier with some silver matt mirror card using Lisa's nested scalloped die.

I thought I would experiment and brushed across the embossed roses (not being too careful) with versamark before then covering with detail silver embossing powder and heating. I then covered the rest of the area by brushing with pink oxide distress ink. The card was finished off with the Dovecraft birthday greeting and the silver gems in the corners.

It's not perfect, but I think it was a good experiment using dry and wet embossing together.

This is for:

Incy wincy: colours of spring and/or embossing
Happy little stampers: anything goes with dies
The paper shelter 466: dies and/or punches
Mod squad: flowers - spring has sprung
Krafty chicks 556: all occasions
Aud sentiments 273: use a birthday sentiment
Always fun 210: anything goes
Word art Wednesday 488: anything goes
Cardz TV 139: anything goes
Colour crazy 16: anything goes
Polka doodles 17: anything goes
Creative moments 213: anything goes
Crafting happiness 93: anything goes
