This was supposed to be a pink card...

but it turned out razzleberry with pink. oops.

I needed a card to throw in a pkg for a tweep overseas, and wanted to do the "smooshing of ink on embossing golder" technique, so i did... i smooshed both Melon Mambo and Razzleberry ink on my folder, then ran it through the Big Shot and only part of it took. So i found took my shimmer paint spray, spritzed the folder a few times and ran it through again. i love the effect - shimmery, watercolory... and even tho the embossing on the flowers is off a bit, i think it looks pretty neat.

i then took a sentiment from the SU retired set "Font of you" (a fave) & heat embossed the quote on some razzleberry DSP. I layered the embossed piece on a bigger piece of DSP & plopped it on razzleberry CS, et voilĂ !

I'm going to submit this to SOS's embossing challenge bc there's both dry embossing & heat embossing . plus, i used scrap DSP.. yay for getting a second, totally different card in for the challenge!

nice. next time try running the inked embossing through your machine several times - that way more ink sticks. And I also found out (on my own mistakes) that lighter colors work better on this technique ;)
