Dry Embossing

This was fun.
I dug out my Dreamweaver stencils, my light box,
my stencil brushes and my Fabrico ink pads and had a ball.
I just went around the outside of the card with my Y00 copic though it doesn't show up very well.
Neither does the fact that I embossed around the outside of the stencil which has depress around the Iris.
Sorry, found it very hard to get a good picture.

Here is a close up of the flowers.
Drat I gave one of the stems a bit too much colour put this down to the fact that it is a while since I did any stencilling. 
You need lots of small scraps of paper to slide under the stencil to keep the colours apart.
This was a brass stencil,  I don't think they make them brass anymore, but very easy to clean just a wipe over with a damp cloth when you use Fabrico.
This is my entry for Less is More- Embossing.
Thank goodness the sun has come out again this week as last week we were
really in the throes of winter with snow on the mountain.

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.

Thank you also for your lovely comments 
Mr Blogger must have like them too as he took some away with him. 
Naughty Boy!
