Less is More challenge: embossing

Evening, all! It's really chilly tonight, so I've dug out my purple snuggle-blanket! I also made 2 cards today! This one uses a very old stamp, which I found when tidying some weeks ago. It's by First Class Stamps Ltd and there's a Sun stamp somewhere in the house, too. Time to tidy up again, methinks!

I embossed in white glitter powder and then sponged with blues from a Kaleidocolor rainbow pad, using a square mask. The challenge at Less is More is for a one-layer embossed card.

Here's a detail shot:

The stamp's quite detailed, and I think would look better with a much finer embossing powder, but it does glitter very prettily!

Hope you're all having a good evening! Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
