Adventures in Embossing

I don't think I've completely mastered the art of embossing, but I am trying to! Recently, I bought some clear powder and thought I'd give it a try with a pretty stamp I got from Michael's. In retrospect, I probably should have taken photos of the process that took place making this card, but C'est la vie! Next time. Here is my attempt-

A Closer Look
Now, there were a few steps with this. First, I took a swirly Recollections stamp and embossed it all over the card. I then used clear embossing powder and applied heat. Then I took to my distress inks! Using Scattered Straw, I applied it all over the card and then applied Vintage Photo to the edges. You can see on the top and bottom of the card how it came out. That in itself came out pretty nice.

Then I took the beautiful woman stamp from Michael's and embossed that on a yellow piece of card stock. I used Ranger's Ultra Thick embossing enamel. I think it came out pretty nice actually.  I took some music paper from a 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper pack I have and added some Vintage Photo onto that. With a ribbon and paper flowers with jeweled centers, I thought this card would be complete!

I'm going to be entering this card in two challenges-

1. Pause Dream Enjoy is having a Ribbon Challenge that ends on January 20th. Make any project, but make sure you incorporate ribbon!

2. Little Scrap Pieces "Anything Goes" Challenge. This ends on Friday January 11th so make sure you get your projects in before that!
