Here is my card to show you with an embossing folder that I have used umpteen times and still love it so.
The roses have been coloured with distress ink which I stamped on the top flap of the folder.
For the leaves, I have used water colours as well as distress inks which I dabbed on an acetate sheet and used a brush to colour the leaves.
After the embossed card stock was dry, I cut it along the roses and leaves for added interest.
The bluish green background is actually Sakura acrylic paints which I dabbed on to a water colour sheet. I hope you like my messy and shabby chic creation.
