Mixing It Up - Distressed Embossed Background

Mixing It Up - Distressed Embossed Background

Welcome back!  Today I've done some embossing over a gel print.  I created some very plain gel prints a couple weekends ago to give me lots of cool painty blank canvases for all sorts of added mediums!

I stamped the beautiful Woodcut Floral background over a panel that was created with my gel press, some white and gold paints and some glitter.  I used embossing ink and embossed with gold powder.  I didn't try to get a clear impression because I wanted a distressed look.  Then I used some distress oxides to add color and splattered water and gold color shine over the top.


I used another light blue gel print to stamp and emboss the separate floral images and fussy cut them out and then layered them together.  I used a gold embellishment for the center and then layered them over the card.  Finally a sentiment from the Seasons Greetings sentiment set.

I stamped extra flowers so you'll be seeing another card with these on it real soon!  Thanks so much for stopping!  Hope you'll come again soon!
