Lots of Heat Embossing...

Hi! I am here with my second card for today, which is a great achievement for me since I am a very slow card maker.

I was inspired to create this card for the current challenge at the WOW! Embossing Powders blog which is favorite embossing technique and the C9 challenge which is One Layer.

I love heat embossing and use it on almost all my projects. And I love the WOW! Embossing powders since they are available in so many different colors and types. I decided to use all my opaque EPs and create a card with a black base. I mounted the large floral stamp from the You're My Person stamp set by Concord and 9th on my Stampaholic and stamped with Versamark. I then sprinkled the Pastel Blue EP, removed the EP from everywhere else except the large blooms and then heat embossed. I repeated this process with different colors of EP till the entire image was covered. I did end up with several flecks of EP on my card base. But It didn't bother me much. I rather like the look it gives the card. The sentiments are from the same set and I love their label style look. I covered rest of the base with the same stamp, using Versamark ink to get a tone on tone look. Here is a close up.

I am quite happy with the way this card turned out. It looks lovely, especially at night when the colors seem to pop up against the black background.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
