Mind you she might not approve - I always seem to go off on a side track!
The 'frame' was stamped onto white card with versa-mark and clear embossed. Then the background colour is mixed directly onto the card with the brayer. The ink won't take over the clear embossing - it resists - hence 'resit embossing'. The top image is part of a set the came from America inked with the multi-colour Kaleidacolor pad, and clear embossed.
I can see doing more on these lines, but tinkering with the background and raising the image. The Kaleidacolor pads are pricey and I only have one - but I expect Father Christmas could bring me another one - I could really do with the greens, wonder if they do a pinks one??
