Embossing with the Cuttlebug & Tim Holtz GrungeBoard

As some of you may know already, I post the challenges on PCP Cuttlebug-ers. Tonight I was scouring the web looking for some new techniques that we could play with in the group. I stumbled across a technique at

Indigo Inklings that I just had to try. However, I did not have all the elements she used to create her card. So, as we crafters do, I set out to create my own. I used Tim Holtz grungeboard. Pretty much in the same manner as I did for my version of Beate's wrist band. I cut it with my scissors to a desired shape. Then using my sandwich of A plate, C plate, a piece of cardstock shim, my card, the embossing folder and the TH grungeboard. Below are some photos of how I did it. The finished card is a white version. I hope you enjoy. And if you try this, please come back and leave me a comment so I can visit your blog and see what lovely thing you have created.
