Monochromatic Blue Birthday

I tried out a new embossing folder today. After trying to ink the raised portions in white ink with no outstanding effects, I resorted to using white shoe polish! Worked like a dream. After doing that, it was glittered generously. (Never too much bling, right?)

Tools used:

Spellbinders: Dew Drop Delight EF; Deckled Rectangles Die Set
Stamin' Up: Botanical Builder Die Set
Joy Craft: Fantasy Butterfly Dies
Martha Stewart: Branch Punch
White Ink and White Shoe Polish
Ink Brayer
Iridescent Glitter
