Here is my card for today's F4A130 challenge. I combined yesterday's WT388 challenge (school tools/supplies) and the faux pressing technique. I always wanted to try the faux pressed flowers technique but never did. To add more texture and visual interest to this card, I decided to try it. Though it doesn't show up so much in the picture, it "feels" neat and it enhanced the collage. On the lighter colored pieces you can see a lot of embossed texture. Note I didn't want to go over the embossing w/more ink because I didn't want it to affect my already inked/distressed images.
THANKS FOR LOOKING! :)
