Break Out That Sanding Block!

Have you ever tried dry embossing?

Dry embossing is achieved by placing a piece of paper upside down on an stencil, and then rubbing a stylus or bone folder along the edges of the stencil to create a raised section of paper.

For this card, after I dry embossed the pattern onto Coredinations card stock, I sanded off the top surface of black to reveal the purple underneath. I then traced the stencil onto the back of coordinating patterned papers, and added them to the sanded image. A bit of enamel pearls around the outside, and mounted onto another piece of marbleized cardstock, and this card was done.
