I have gone with using both wet and dry embossing as my main element along with several other forms of adding texture to my card.
I have used cardstock to make my base card using two shades of purple. The next layer is hand made paper using the 'Shaving Foam ' technique and distress re inkers. Edges of paper have been distressed and then I have further hand stitched a border for extra texture. White card has been dry embossed using an embossing folder from a folder and stamp set called ' Design -a-flower' which came free with a craft magazine called 'Paper Craft Essentials'. The sentiment (from the same set) has been embossed using 'Wow' silver embossing powder. Finally I have coloured the embossed element of the flower design using my 'Derwent' Watercolour pencils.
