A New Winter Wonderland Challenge

Hi to all my blogging friends.
 
Welcome to this weeks' Winter Wonderland Challenge.
Firstly, congrats to last weeks winner.
 
This week, it's the turn of the Snowflakes DT, at
Winter Wonderland.
 
The theme is:
 
EMBOSSING, WET OR DRY
 
CHRISTMAS CARDS/PROJECTS ONLY PLEASE.
 
I chose to do dry, using a Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities Folder,
Rustic Wreath.
 
I used a piece of silver Mirror Card to emboss.
I then roughly painted black acrylic paint,
 over the main part of the image, the wreath.
 
I let it dry for a few minutes and then rubbed a piece of kitchen paper,
over the painted area. That left the paint, just in the debossed areas.
 
 
The sentiment die, was a free gift on a magazine last year.
 
Sorry about the pictures, as you can see my arms in the card!!

 
I used Cosmic Shimmer coloured glue for the berries.
