Embossing magic- Cards

Hello friends!!! This month's challenge is all about usage of embossing powder in different ways in your projects. There are so many ways in which you can use them, create backgrounds, emboss the image and use watercolors/DI for coloring, emboss resist, over vellum etc. 

             Click here to read challenge guidelines and here for more about this months challenge.

I have made three cards as inspiration for this challenge. For the first card I took a watercolor paper and heat embossed one of the altenew persian motif stamp using golden EP. Then colored it using DIs Worn lipstick and mowed lawn. I slightly water-colored the panel with DI. Matted it over a matching green card base. Stamped the sentiment with black archival ink on a banner. For final touches added some sequins. 

Second card one is a shaker crad.  For this I have heat embossed the same stamp set as used above with white EP, colored with DI's and fussy cut them. Prepared a shaker panel with white CS on a white card base and arranged the embossed flowers on one corner. Added some stickles glitter glue on flowers. The sentiment inside the shaker has been also embossed with mustard color EP. Added some sequins. 

And for the final card I have used stamp set lacy scrolls from altenew. Heat embossed one of the stamp from the set several times on a white card base using glittered black EP. Stamped flowers and leaves on a white CS and fussy cut them. Added some shading using color pencils and glued them over the embossed panel using foam dots to add some dimension. stamped sentiment using black archival ink and finished off with some golden sequins.
