This is the card I made with a finger dabber and gilding wax.
And this is the card I made using only my finger and a metallic distress crayon. Here is the step by step on how I made the latter....
You need black card stock, the 3D embossing folder, I used the Botanical one from Tim Holtz, Distress Oxide and a distress crayon. I went for Bundled Sage Oxide and Antique Bronze crayon.
The "simple" embossed card is gorgeous all by itself, this 3D technique takes dry embossing to greater heights!
I swiped the pad over the card and rubbed the oxide with my finger over the whole surface.
I scribbled my crayon over the raised relief and rubbed ober it with my finger. I love the combo of bundled sage and antique bronze!
I coloured my paper ballerina with Victorial Velvet distress crayon, same with the sentiment.
And here is the finished card again. I stuck the embossed piece to a pinkish card blank to tie it all together.
