Inkspirations Challenge #89 - Old School Embossing

Hithere, this week's challenge from the Team at Inkspirations is a great & very versatile sketch:-

I whipped out the gold embossing powder & Versamark ink & did some old school embossing, trying to capture the look of oriental screen:-


I've kept this one really simple, with gold embossing on the Basic Black cardstock panels, which are layered on vanilla & then on metallic gold cardstock.  The sentiment oval has been popped up on dimensionals & there is some vanilla taffeta ribbon between the layers.

The Inkspirations Team have some great ideas to inspire you, so please come & join us!

That is the most perfect embossing, and does look oriental. What a creative take on the sketch.
