You're not the (em)boss of me!

The DCM Friday challenge is :

Embossing.

Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine. Using embossing powders or triple embossing. Using pre-embossed papers. Embossing with found items. Just have fun playing! And as I can't resist being a little (em)bossy - why not see if you can get more than one emboss technique on your card?

I have used triple embossing to make a faux tile, and also embossed gold around the edge, none too neatly! I'm becoming frustrated that the scanner doesn't pick up details, but c'est la vie!

Stamps : Stampington Md bay leaf

Inks : Color palette gold; Adirondack dabbers pool, juniper, lemonade; versamark pad and pen

Oh Ros this is so beautiful...
I bet it's just awesome in the flesh...I get a bit frustrated with my scanner too sometimes... I love the colours you've used, and that stamp is lovely isn't it...

Great card - elegant as Leigh says. Lovely colours.

Gorgeous card.
I fancy a go at brushless watercolour stamping & I thought at first glance this was.
My camera doesn't always pick up detail too well either.

Lovely! I wish I could make it bigger but it won't seem to let me, but it's a great technique!
