Altered this old 3x3"note pad by adding the embossed patterned using Plaid brass stencil. Have bought this many years ago before I have the die-cut machine. I was fascinated with hand embossing then..lol..!
After embossed with stylus, I inked the embossed area with TH Spun Sugar distress ink. Such fun. I love details embossing.
