Sending Hugs 3D embossing


Hi everyone, I've been trying out a new to me technique with some 3D embossing folders.
Inking the folder on the concave side then placing the cardstock in to run it through my Big Shot Plus.

Need more play time with my blending and choosing colours but I'm having a lot of fun!
I spritzed the finished panel with dazzling diamonds for some shimmer.
Here's a closer look.

I inked the black diecut sentiment with versamark and clear embossed to add some shine.
The hugs stamp was clear embossed and fussycut to try and fit as best it could.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday,  out with the old in with the new

This is a very pretty floral 3D EF Cathy and love the four colours you have used and the added shine looks great, and finished perfectly with the contrasting black mat and die cut and stamped sentiment. A beautiful card. x
