Ooh La La Challenge #223 - Embossing

For our new challenge at Ooh La La Creations we would like you to incorporate some embossing into your work.


I've used the beautiful Elegant Nautilus design  from the Shawn Jenkins CD, available here , selecting the pyramage. Part of the design incorporates some script, so I've reflected that by using a script text embossing folder. I swiped the "inny" side (ie the raised side, which will form the inny part after embossing) with blue distress ink before embossing the white card, to leave the letters white - I think this technique is called faux letterpress. The layering is dark grey to match the scroll across the bottom of the image, and aqua gems add to the underwater look.
