Ocean 11 Group's 3rd Challenge (dry embossing background)

Ocean's 11 group's third challenge was to use a dry embossing texture background for a card. This is a dotted Swiss texture in a light moss green color, this was chalked a bit to be more visible. The stamped image was colored with Copic markers and water color pencils. Crystal glaze was added to just the flower for a 3-D affect. I left the inside blank so it may be used for most any occasion.

I love the Crystal Glaze effect. Such nice colors too! Which copics did you use?

Karen, this is lovely. I've never thought of adding some chalk to the textured parts to give them more "pop" - what a wonderful idea! Beautiful!

Great job on this challenge. The swiss dots folder is probably my favorite of all the CB embossing folders. I like the shine to the flower too - looks very pretty that way.

Karen... I love this gorgeous rose! Love the crystal glaze really gives it depth! I think the swiss dot ef is one of my all time favorites for the cuttelbug! So you have a winning combo here!
