Under Pressure

Morning everyone. Here's a short post to show my card for the One Stop Craft Challenge. The lovely Maggie has chosen the theme this week and it is 'Under Pressure'. So we'd like to see you creations featuring embossing.

For my card I tried the triple embossing technique. This is a technique where layers of ink and embossing powder are built up and on the final layer you stamp the image into the moulten layers. Sorry it doesn't show too well on the photo, I wanted to take another one but I just didn't get any time when it was daylight.

Brads, ribbon, black card and metal butterfly from my stash

Beautiful card Sharon, not done any triple embossing in a long time, I love how you've used an image and a sentiment on your card.

Left you an award on my blog but appreciate how busy you are right now so don't worry about posting it on yours
