I must say another big THANK YOU to all you amazing LIMettes and Lady LIM Chrissie and Diva LIM Mandi for all the lovely, lovely comments!! They just make my day ladies!!
Less is More. This week is one layer challenge week and Chrissie and Mandi have asked us to do some embossing, either heat/wet or dry. I decided to do both. One of my favorite ways to emboss is to use VersaMark watermark ink and stamp it on to colored cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set. The color of the cardstock just "pops" with this technique. I decided to use kraft cardstock because next to white cardstock kraft is my favorite. Using the largest rectangle in the Spellbinders Large Rectangle dies I embossed the rectangle onto my card base. I then stamped the damask image from the SU! set Bliss in the center, applied the clear embossing powder and heat set. I finished off the card with a simple "thank you" stamped in black ink. Simple as simple can get, but well... I like simple!!
Thanks for taking a peek...
Supplies: Cardstock: PTI kraft; Stamps: SU! Bliss & Because I Care; Ink: VersaMark Watermark, PTI True Black; Ranger UltraFine Clear Embossing Powder; Spellbenders Large Rectangle dies
It may be simple, but it's so beautiful. I do like the tone on tone effect of clear embossing - and this damask stamp is so elegant. Great card!

You're killin' me with the elegance factor, Rosebud. YOU are such a tasteful crafter: I adore your work! Your use of dry embossing proves THAT! It just celebrated the beauty of PAPER, first and foremost! Such a terrific showcase for your excellent TALENT, as well as taste! Whoopeeee!
