Monthly Mission Card-Distressed Embossing

     I finally finished a card for our Monthly Mission Cardmaking group. Only 2 to go.  This is a little different from my usual, but a lot more messy.LOL. This card was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Distress inks. I took my Crushed Olive distress ink pad and ran it over my flat sided embossing folder. I then put it through my cuttlebug. The raised areas stayed cream at this point. I then took my tea dye ink and dauber and run it over the raised areas. Then, i took Vintage photo and my dauber to go over the edges of the cardstock and over the tea dyed raised areas again slightly. I did all of this on Cryogen white cardstock that i had bought at Paper Temptress. This cardstock has a little built in shimmer.
     Other accessories included: Half Pearls, Spellbinders die, Stampin'up sentiment, Wedding confetti flowers, Martha Stewart leaves border punch, Raffia painted with Lettuce paint dauber by Tim Holtz. That's it! Sweet and Simple! I think that it looks better in person then the picture.
