Embossing with Dies

Have you tried using dies to emboss a design on CS rather than just cutting out the design? I was inspired to try this after watching a tutorial by Therese posted on Annabelle's  Stamp Embellish Create Community in their Topical Tuesdays. Check it out.  I am not sure if you have to be a member or not to view the tutorial. I used Cheery Lynn Exotic 2 Butterflies dies. After embossing the butterflies on white CS, I used masks and colored the butterflies by sponging Memento Cantaloupe and Tangelo Inks.  After removing masks, I sponged ever so lightly around the butterflies. I then used colored pencils to highlight the edges, antenna, and bodies.  I trimmed the image layer and rounded the corners before edging with a black marker. I stamped the sentiments from Paper and Such with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I attached this to an Orange patterned layer of K&Co Paper and then on to a Base Card of White.  Love the effect of the dies embossed on the card.
