Striped embossing

Sharing a card I made using a technique shared by Betsy over at PTI. The latest MIM #130 is about striped embossing...a fun and easy technique!

stamps- Papertrey Ink- Stylish Holiday sentiments, year of flowers

This card is my 5th attempt, my earlier 4 cards are in the recycle bin! I tried Betsy's technique of using post-it's for masking, but every single time the sticky residue from the post-it's attracted stray embossing pdr!. Finally I stamped using versamark and poured the three different colors of pdr..silver, bronze and gold without masking..and ..prayed!

I stamped the poinsettia and colored in loosely.

here is a closer look.......

Also sharing with Simon Says Stamp- Emboss it

and Moxie Fab World-all that glitters is gold challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
