Learning a new technique

Hi there!

They say you are never to old to learn... so it's a big thanks to the just us girls's Andrea who challenges us this week to do some 'faux embossing'.
It is such a fun technique, which at the same time gives you a chance to use some forgotten punches/dies!
I will definitely use it again in the future!

I kept the design simple to emphasize the postage stamps which works well with the sentiment stamp, in order to enter this to the cas-ualfridays 'lets get sentimental' challenge.




The sentiment says 'mailed with love'






Also entering :
come and get it challenges. ~ white on white
catered crop ~ ribbon

Thanks for visiting me today!

Wow those stamp diecuts work so well for this technique.... They really do look embossed and the postage mark is the perfect match for the theme :0)
