Embossing with white

The Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge #155 at Marks Finest Papers and Stamps Blog is white embossing.  My Card uses two stamps from the Marks Finest Papers "Island Life" set. Both the sentiment and the lighthouse are embossed in white and the lighthouse is coloured with water colour pencils - though in this case no water was used. The card was finished with a reef knot tied from plain cotton twine - simple!  The kraft card is a little buckled as we have been having unseasonably wet weather and the card loves to soak up the moisture in the air.  It also made the embossing a little painful too as the powder wants to stick where you don't want it to.  Thanks for looking, cheers Linda
