Over at Crafting with Dragonflieswe are asking you to create a card with embossing, wet and or dry.
I find the 'dry' quick and easy, even though I love the look of the wet embossing.
This is a large square 15 x 15 cm card. The embossed Dragonfly is a Sizzix, Tim Holtz alterations embossing folder. Which I then rubbed the black over lightly and made a grunge look, and of course some glitz....as you do.
