Here's a vintage Christmas card I created using some heat embossing and some Ranger Distress Stains. I took a piece of watercolour paper and heat embossed the argyle background with clear embossing powder. Then I took some red and green Distress Stains, dabbed them onto my craft mat and then put the watercolour paper on top to create the background. My colours did get a bit muddled together (which I think might be because of the type of paper I used) so if you want more defined colours then I would recommend spacing the inks further apart and maybe adding a few spritzes of water. Then the card was finished off with some dyed binding and Authenique papers.
