They're the kind of card no-one wants to have to make but that it's always good to have. So I used the challenge as an excuse to have one stashed away but in the hopes of not needing it any time soon.
When I get a new stamp set, I like to spend a bit of time playing with it and getting to know it. In the last few days, that's been the To A Wild Rose bundle.
I thought that the outline stamps in the set might take kindly to resist embossing. It turns out that they do.
I mixed colours when I sponged the embossing to give more depth. Then I added a hint of sponging to the opposite corner by the sentiment to draw the eye down.
