Designs by Ryn Stamps and a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.

Hello bloggers, just a quick post today.   
Centura Pearl card using the white, reverse side, as I normally do for Distress inks work, inserted into a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and embossed in my eBosser.
Rub a white wax crayon over 'random' parts of the embossed image. Try to cover just the raised areas but don't worry if other bits get the 'wax treatment' too!
Apply various colours of Distress inks then dry with a heat gun.
Buff the image with kitchen towel, to remove some of the ink from the areas that were covered with the crayon. 
The stamps I've used are from Designs by Ryn Water Droplets 2 and the Koi Carp.

I painted the Koi Carp with distress stains.
Thank you for looking at my blog today
Happy crafting

I love how you've used Koi Set in both pieces. The swirls in this one go so well with the fish as they really give the feeling of water. And of course, I love your colours as usual. GORGEOUS!!!
