Wet + Dry Embossing with Background Dies

 Hullo there everyone! A few cards with a newish technique used once before!
A big peek..
Using from Bizzy Becs:
Frantic Stamper Sanharan Screen Background Die
Cut piece of card coloured or white card of good weight, to fit die for background piece. As you'll see I used two different background dies here.
 Use anti static pad on card first, ink it up lightly with Versamark ink pad
TIP: Put versamark on cutting surface *only, so just dust *gently across the top of the die.
**avoid as much as possible pressing into the crevices of the die pattern.
If you do, you'll need to remove lots of excess powder from wrong place. 
(Wonder why I know) 

After inking, work out embossing sandwich for your machine, I used a very thin shim on my machine, instead of thicker usual shim.
Place cardstock on rubber mat, gently lower die, cutting side down on cardstock and run through once. I found once with thinner shim sufficient on my machine.
Dust well with EP of choice, remove unwanted areas with fine paint brush (much less on my third attempt) and heat set.
 If not quite enough embossing, you can carefully repeat, I did on one of mine, and it worked well. Just line up carefully.
 The other background die used. First time used, I put in centre pieces of Sue Wilson die. But left it plainer on third card, thought it looked better, less is more.
Use a fine brush to remove excess powder.
  Choose simple overlay of design on top, these Elizabeth Craft Design Quietfire dies are simply perfect.
 Die cut the greeting three times with backing double sided paper on the back.
 Leave greeting in each layer, and layer the intricate top layers into placed whilst still not separated (see photos). 
Makes it much easier!
 Loved both these variations, it would look great on deep burgundy cardstock too or green for a Christmas card background.
 Sue Wilson background die, one with and one without centre.

 Thanks for patience in reading this long post.
