Texture Embossing Folder (5 x 7) - Dry Stone Wall

I wanted to try out a new technique I had seen on YouTube and I thought this embossing folder would work brilliantly with it.

I took an A4 piece of craftwork card, gave it a light coating of white Gesso and left it to dry overnight. I cut out a 5" x 7" piece and embossed it with the dry stone wall textures embossing folder. I very lightly sanded a few area's just to bring back some of the brown kraft card and distress ink and ended up with a lovely white washed wall finish (hope that makes sense).

All that was left to do was add a few embellishments and a sentiment so I went for a ribbon and flowers and the sentiment I left unmounted as I wanted the embossing to show through as much as possible.

My husband did help with this bit (he picked the colour of the flowers and the quantity), The card was shown on TV and he was telling everyone this this was his design.... (bless)!

Well, I hope you all have a lovely weekend - I may be able to spend a few hours finishing off a few crafty projects this weekend x
