I began by dry-embossing the Hydrangea (LJ888) stencil and, with the stencil still in place, colored the image with pigment inks. Using my finger, I applied small amounts of Versamark Watermark ink to some of the petals and sprinkled them with Stampendous Vintage Lilac embossing tinsel. The next steps are easy: heat from the back of the card to set the embossing tinsel; tear the edges of the card stock to soften the image and ink with Ranger Antique Linen distress ink; and attach to coordinating background papers.
It's difficult to see the glitter on the larger image above, but the detail on the right, taken at an angle, gives you a better idea of the sparkle from the embossing tinsel.
