Just watched again - the technique results in such a pretty look! Am wondering if you used fine black glitter on the image, and see Sakura Stardust pen - maybe you went over the stamped image with the pen. Either way, the card is unique and amazing!

Gina, I love this idea and made a Christmas card using it!  It is a little time consuming, but sooooo worth it!  Thanks so much for all your great ideas!  I also agree with the poster beneath me....thin cardstock is not a good idea for this technique.

I just tried this technique using recycled paper - I do not urge you to try with that particular paper product as the dry embossing cut the paper - maybe I had too much pressure. However. I am not giving up and will attempt with a better quality card or cover stock paper as suggested.
