OWH VCMP - Texture Omit/Selective Embossing

How fun it can be to learn a new technique!  Beth challenged us to make a card using a "diffuser" to selectively emboss our card fronts then stamping any image in the portion that was not texturized by the embossing folder.  It was much easier than I thought and I really appreciated the link that Beth provided to a video that explained how to make the diffuser on our own using cardstock.

Anyone who is familar with my stamping style knows that I dry emboss on many of my cards with large areas of plain card stock so this technique is one that I am sure I will be using again in the future.

I may not have chosen the best stamp to highlight the "non-embossed" area for this challenge but it is still pretty.  Anyone out there surprised to see that I actually colored this image?  Ha!  I am!  The stamp is from SU! called Garden Collage from 2005.  I used a blender pen and SU! markers to lightly color it. 

On to Challenge #4!
