Embossing?


Happy Saturday!!! Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

Just want to show you a card that I whipped up for a couple challenges.

Glenda's Random Amusing Challenge #81, the theme is to do some heat embossing on your card.

Etsy Inspired challenge #105 , their featured shop this week is Handmade Whimzy's shop, there is a set of two toned pink chrysanthemum hair pins... so so cute! You know that I love flowers and they are pink too... love them!

Oh my, oh my... I haven't use embossing powder foreverrrrr! Then, I put on my thinking cap... the embossing powder will resist any ink and of course, glimmer mist!!!! How about that? An old craft goodness meets my new favorite!Smiley from millan.net

Glimmer mist it's! I first misted the watercolor paper with pink bubblegum, then use clear embossing powder and embossed this pretty flower from Amuse called open zinnia, then misted again with the beautiful black cherry "mist"fits (dude, I love this color... I'll be very sad when gone!).

Fun, fun, FUN! Off I go... got to glimmer mist some more... later! Smiley from millan.net
