The April challenge at Serendipity Stamps Blog is to "emboss" - dry embossed using an embossing folder or heat embossed using embossing powder. For my card I used the Serendipity Corner Vase stamp set and the Sizzix Bricked embossing folder.
I used Bristol 96lb cardstock, stamped the image using Archival black ink then used a water brush and Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to color the image and do a soft color wash behind the image. Once dry, I embossed the image panel with the Bricked embossing folder and adhered the stamped and colored panel to the card base. A very CAS card with no ribbon and no embellishments so the focus would be on the stamped, colored, and embossed image.
