Wet dry embossing!

Yes, you dry emboss after you have put paint or ink into the folder.  So, I swiped the inside of the folder with SU White Kraft ink and then ran it through the Cuttlebug - interesting effect.  I did the positive side and then the negative side, and find it hard to see which one I like best.  I used only two colours - SU's rich razzleberry and marina mist, and even dyed some seam binding in MM to get ribbon to tone. It dried quickly in the gale force winds thundering into the bay at the moment! The cards are quite quick to make up once the ink has dried - and you need to wash the embossing folder straight away in warm, soapy water. I added some sparkle and coloured the stones with my Copic pens to get them to tone to the RR card.  The card bases are white commercial blanks.

The first card uses a Verve stamp and sentiment and the second one is a Verve sentiment from the set Sweet Treats but I used a Fleur De Lis Square die cut. I lightly sponged on some MM and RR ink as well to this label.  

I will enter this in : as they want sentiments of two or more words.  Either card qualifies.
