Spotlighted Embossing


At last found some time to do a bit of distressing on my card (just a bit) for the Digi Doodles Shops Best challenge.
We would love to see from you this week your Embossing.
For my card I have used the image Lady Bug – really spotlighted the image by printing the same image three times but on different coloured cardstock,
then layered one on top of the other. This technique is called Spotlighting and you can see a how to video from Dawn here.
Coloured the last image with Pro markers and triple embossed it.

For even more inspiration pop along to see what the other DT girls have created.
