MMM Challenge 6 Vintage Embossing

Hi hows you? It's been lovely here in Crewe today. Even managed to sit outside with visitors and enjoy the sun and garden.

This week over at Make My Monday the theme is still vintage but this week with embossing.
 I've chosen dry embossing with the cuttle bug using two different plates.
I'm enjoying this challenge It's helping  me have a go at different styles , techniques etc.... can't be bad!.
Hope this qualifies as vintage.


Stamps: Elusive Images: Harlequin Rose stamp plate.
              Viva Decor : Script.
Ink:        DI: Victorian velvet, Antique linen
              Stazon: Dove Gray
              Versafine: Onyx black .
Embossing Folders: Provo craft: Script and Diamond. The diamond embossing plate has been cut out and placed in an haphazard way.
Core'dinations: ColourCore cardstock: used for embossing
Distress crackle paint: Rock Candy
Sequin waste.
Cream card stock

Close up of crackle glaze.
I wanted to make it look like all the bits were crackling and peeling off the page in their extreme age! :)).............. If you're any thing like me you know  what I mean lol.

I'm quite sure it will qualify as vintage and how well that diamond embossing folder goes with the stamped image. Pretty card
