Flower Wishes




I've got a fun card to share with you today that uses lots of wonderful embossing powder from Wow! There are so many ways to use embossing powder, and this card shows you several of them. First I used Wow's Call Me Stamp Set and embossed it using Suzy West Angel Wings. After that powder was heat set, then I rubbed the entire image with Versamark ink, and sprinkled it heavily with the Ultra High Clear powder. Look at all of the texture you get!



The flower is a brass flower from Graphic 45 - so yes, you can emboss on metal too! I inked the entire flower with Versamark ink, and sprinkled it with Opaque Pastel Pink Regular and embossed it. Then I took a Versamark pen, and drew detail lines on the petals, and added Suzy West Angel Wings to it. It's amazing how quickly and easily you can add a few special details.
