One Stamp, two ways ~ A Little Card Magic

Hello and welcome to WOW EMBOSSING BLOG.  This months theme is One stamp, two ways.  I have created a special card to give as a gift.   The stamp set I have used is Vintage wallpaper,  it would be one of my favourite WOW Stamps and can be used for so much.  I love using it as a background.

I stamped a piece of white card stock with my stamp and then added white embossing powder.  This created a white on white effect that I could use as a resist.  I got some colour sprays and strayed my paper over the embossed area.  While the spray was still wet I got a wet wipe and swiped over the embossed area to take of any of the excess spray.

I used a second piece of card stock and again embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper stamp,  this time I used a contrasting colour, cut my paper to size to fit my die and cut out some pine cone swirls which makes stunning wee roses.

I cut some leaves to go with my roses.

I made the roses and then sprayed with a matching colour of the embossing powder.  I love these little roses.  To finish them off I inked the edges.  I added the roses and leaves along with other embellishments to the base card stock.
