Sweet Stamps-Burnt Embossing......

 This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are creating with the Burned Embossing technique .
I found a tutorial on SCS HERE
   I stamped a newly released image from the Decorative Elements set HERE with Ranger embossing ink and embossed with Clear EP. I used the embossing buddy first......... I decided to use Queens Gold EP around the edge of my card...so, just drag your cardstock through the embossing ink and dip the edge into the embossing powder.  I 'burnt' the embossing powder on the edges and top gold medallion as well.  Here is another view:
For the die, I used cardstock and sponged on the Ranger Distress Ink- so it would coordinate with the sponged colors on the front panel.  The background has the image stamped in the clear ink for a watermark effect. This card fits into a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 envelope.

What do you think?  I hope you will join us this week!


Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my cards:
Stamp: Decorative Elements Set
Happy Birthday Script sentiment HERE
Embossing Pal- antistatic pouch HERE
Ranger Distress Inks- HERE  Clear for embossing, Dusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade
Clear Embossing Powder HERE
