Less is More wk 15 - one layer card, embossing

This week's challenge at Less is More is embossing, which I thought was going to be easy until I realised it was also 'one layer card' week.  Hmm... what to do!


In my case, you make a big mess of it lol!  I haven't got much time this week, so I couldn't make another one... but I'll be honest and admit now that I've taken the pic I'll be stamping the sentiment again and layering it over my dodgy version.  I stamped the Hero Arts flower stamp with Distress Ink in 'tattered rose' and then clear embossed it, but I forgot that the sentiment wouldn't stamp well over the embossing - oops!  Added a few pearls to some of the flowers - they're the same colour as the sentiment (which was stamped in 'rhubarb' memento), they just don't look it in the pic.  The card blank was made from ivory linen cardstock from Papermill Direct.

Hopefully I'll do better with next week's challenge!

I love this image and the treatment makes a superb effect. The colour of the sentiment looks a little far removed from the image itself.
Love the pearls!
Thanks so much
