Coloured Dry Embossing with Anna Griffin Dies

Hello dear friends and followers, hope you are all well.....today I have two cards created with my new Anna Griffin floral dies and embossing folder.
They look fabulous left just dry embossed on white card, but I thought I would try colouring them.  My first card was printed with Pink Petticoat Ombre in Dainty Daffodil. I then cut and embossed my Anna Griffin die. I coloured the flowers and leaves with ProMarkers, then added my butterfly, which is from Spellbinders Les Papillons Two. I then stamped my sentiment from JustRite 'Good Friends Labels Twenty Nine' set of stamps.....
To finish I added some bling to my butterfly and card base.....
For my second card I used Pan Pastels to colour the flowers and leaves through the die before removing the card. I layered this onto a plain piece of card, and then onto an embossed piece of card, embossed with the Anna Griffin  'Ogee Damask' folder.....
My sentiment is from JustRite 'Celebrations Labels One & Bracket Borders One' set of stamps. I stamped onto Spellbinders and added some colour with Pan Pastels.....
Thank you for stopping by today
Lots of love, Sasha x

Two creations of sheer delight Sasha, the first with such pretty blossoms but I think it's the second with the floaty butterfly that just pips it to the post for me.

Wow Sasha, these are real beauties. My fave is the pink one and I really like how you managed to keep the colouring centred on the die cute. Mine always smudge so I gave up with this technique!

Your cards are both absolutely FABULOUS -- I never see AG products any more and I LOVE them -- had no idea she had dies/EFs, so will have to hunt these down and add to my stash! So glad you 'let me know'!!!
