Colouring dry-embossed images

A friend from Docrafts sent me some dry-embossed Christmas images on coloured pearlescent card. I turned them into Christmas cards by colouring with distress markers and a water brush, adding a stamped sentiment, and matting onto the front of card blanks.


The "Let it Snow" sentiment is from a Justrite stamp set I bought last year.


The "Magical" sentiment is from a mag freebie set of stamps.

Entered for the following challenge:
CAS-ual Fridays - Embossing


  1. These are wonderful Maddy. Gorgeous embossed designs and you have coloured them so beautifully.
    I hope you have a good weekend

  2. Some times it is a litle difficult to find new words to say about your cards. They are always so fine and with so many effects.

  3. Great cards, love the colours.

  4. Still in enforced c&p mode I'm afraid, but still enjoy taking a look at your latest creation.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  7. These are lovely cards. Such nice subtle colours.

  8. This is wonderful idea, Maddy. Your card are beautiful! I have some strange embossing folders which I thought are usless. With this technique, maybe I can even use them. Thank you!
