God's Beauty.

This card has a lot of embossing on it, but it was fun to make. I did the Rubber Band Emboss Technique from over at  StampTV . This also covers the new challenge for Lisa and I. We had to do the brayer with rubber bands around it technique and I loved the way Gina K. did hers over at StampTV, so this is what I did. :) I took off the roller and wrapped rubber bands around it, then re-attached the roller to the handle. I than rolled the brayer in Versamark ink and rolled the brayer across white cardstock. I than applied gold embossing power and heat embossed it. Than I turned the white cardstock and again used the Versamark ink and rolled it over the cardstock and applied the gold embossing powder and embossed. Than I sponged ink over the entire piece and wiped the gold embossing lines off with a tissue. This is my background layer on the card. Than I embossed the butterfly in black and used my water color crayons to color it in. The hardest part was remembering to keep my fingers out of the embossing powder before I had the chance to emboss it. LOL Gina K. has a wonderful video on StampTV that shows you exactly how to do this, I hope you take a look at give it a try. Thanks for looking, have a great day.

LOVE that rubber band technique! I had read about that in a SSA magazine and it is on my list of things to try! Beautiful!
