Focus....


Glitter and embossing, how fun!

I saw a technique that was new to me the other day while surfing the net where you mix glitter and clear embossing powder, so I decided to give it a whirl.
I combined some of my new PK Glitz transparent pink glitter with the embossing powder and after stamping Flourishes "Peony" image with Versamark, I scooped the mix and heat set. I will for sure be using this again. Love the way the glitter sticks so beautifully on the card. I fussy cut the flower and sponged the edges with pink ink.
I then stamped the leaves from that same stamp and hand cut.

I have also been loving seeing the mix of embossed images as a background. I punched 4 scalloped squares running each of these through different embossing folders. 
I layered these onto another piece of the Bazzill pink card stock that I had stamped my flower onto.
I then used foam dots to attach to the card base which I had run through a swiss dot folder.

 I am again entering my cards at 
  Moxie Fab World -- Focal Point Challenge to celebrate the new Card Design Handbook 
  Flourishes Sprinkles on top where you add glitter, beads, flower soft...it's up to you.
