When is a die NOT a die?

I was playing today with the Memory Box Poinsettia die. Instead of cutting with it I used it behind a paper layer and embossed it up into the paper using a latex mat.
I left the paper on the die for support then went over the ridges and gently into the hollows with a sponge dauber
and Distress Ink (bundled sage).
Next I used a dauber and Brilliance ink (Galaxy Gold)
to highlight the ridged edges and to gently sponge
 around the edges of the layer.

The gems are from Couture Creations.
The paper is Fab Scraps.

As usual my camera does not do justice to the finished card.
It seems to ignore all the glittery bits and deepen all the dark areas :(
