I made this background as inspired by a patterned paper made by American Crafts under #Summer Collection (Road Trip.)
The sentiment was done based on Jennifer McGuire's Iron-off embossing technique, http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2014/04/video-watercolor-backgrounds-iron-off-embossing-birthday-hop-giveaway.html. She used it with her background stamps (which I will try next.) I decided to use try the technique on the sentiment on my card. Since my embossed sentiment had scattered embossing powder all over despite using the powder tool, I ironed-off the embossed sentiment. It flattened my sentiment, thickening the margin of the sentiment. It also looks like it's been written with a chalk. So the mess was tolerable. Here's the outcome...
