With my strip from the previous project I brushed my black ink pad across surface to pick up highlights then heat set clear embossing powder. Used dry embossing folder made out of wallpaper to give black cs some texture then mounted strip and Silhouette cut sentiment. This was then mounted on white cs base.
I like the way the shine in the strip plays off of the dull in the back cs and white sentiment. Plus the embossing on both the strip and black added so much texture.
