Embossing Pops with added Colour

Welcome to a month of celebrating Rock n Roll, music, performers etc. at Cookin' Up Creations.
I thought it would be fun to share with you.. Mama Mia..It was a made into a movie and had live stage performances... and music by Abba.
It had such fun upbeat music, dancing and great scenery.. and the photos are full of inspiration too.

On this layout I used the embossing folders that had floral design.. kind of similar to print papers. I then used copics to colour on the raised portion of the embossed piece. It made a beautiful Accent portion to the layout with texture and colour.

On the card I used the same embossing folder for the majority portion of the card. To make it pop more I used a silver gray ink on the raised section of the embossed piece. On the left panel I embossed a floral with stem and used white ink to pop it.

So my challenge is to get out those embossing folders.. add some ink, copics or any type of colour to pop its detailing and use it on any project.
Added twist.. take some inspiration from the Mama Mia photos whether it be colouring, style, scenery.. you surprise me......

This card was also used at My Sketch World to finish some of my cards for the fabulous month of September doing the ABC CROP. It is used for V.. Vellum.. I cut the vellum butterfly and then embossed the dot pattern or more texture. The crop is almost over but it was an amazing, busy month of layouts and cards.
