Week 2, Day 2 - All about embossing

Today at Summer Card Camp 2 we got to learn different embosssing techniques. Our homework then was to create a card with heat embossing and using the color combo for this week. I wanted to try the technique that Jennifer showed us about embossing with clear powder on top of the stamps and then use distress pens to make a watercolor shading behind the stamps. Forgot the last step so I don't have any watercolor shading around my flowers and don't know how well it would turn out since I didn't user watercolor paper so I leave it like this and try to make another card one day.

I usually just wing it when I stamp and don't really have a clear plan but today I stamped the flowers first on a pice of scrap paper to see how it would turn out. Maybe I should do that more often:)


 Can you see the clear embossing shining on top of the flowers?


Supplies I used:
Hero Arts ink pads: Green Hills, Pool and Cup O' Joe
Jenni Bowlin ink pad: Seed Packet
Stamps from My Favorite Things, Sweet Roses, K-design
Embossing powder from Wow: Clear and Blue Glitz ( for the text stamp)
