Laura Bassen demonstrated a very cool technique that stretches those dies even more in this week's Make it Monday #179: Emboss Resist Using Diecuts. I just got some PTI halloween goodies so I decide to try this technique with the Text Block: Halloween die.
Here's my card:
I used Distress Inks with a blending tool on the panel after embossing it.
Here's a detail shot that shows the sparkle created with Calico Shine mist that I spritzed the panel with and that cute little bat.
Thanks for checking out my card today!
