Gesso card

The embossed part of this card has had gesso applied to patterned paper before it was embossed. Not only did I get rid of the gastly colour and pattern I also added bulk to the paper, which made the embossing stand out further. I used a paint brush to apply the gesso and hence you can see the lines. I also didn't cover it with a heavy coat as I wanted some of the colour of the patterned paper to show through.This added to the rustic appearance.

Gosh what a lovely card. And a clever idea. I'll have to pick up some Gesso tomorrow! How long does it take to dry before you put it through the embossing folder/cuttlebug? TFS!
