Horses For You

And here is my "stepped up" card. For this card I added the "emerging colour" technique: stamped the horse using VersaMark, clear embossed and brayered Blue Bayou ink over the top. Once you wipe away the ink from the embossing you have the coloured images showing through the embossing and a little bit through the brayered ink. It produces a more complicated looking card, but it's really just a combination of two simple techniques. Now if I didn't have to unplug my OTT light every time I wanted to heat emboss I'd be doing this much more!

What a lovely card Carol - and the colour combo does work really well with this set too.
