With Thanks

Hello there, today I have another card to share with you that I have made as part of my guest designing with WOW Embossing Powder. Since the theme this month is shimmers, I wanted to use one of the Glintz powders. These have a beautiful pearlescent finish to them.

I started off with a panel of watercolour paper. I added masking tape to the edges to create my focal point in the centre. I took one of the leaves from the WPlus9 Autumn Leaves stamp set and stamped this three times on to the panel. I stamped it using WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink and then applied WOW Mayan Glintz Embossing Powder.
I then taped the piece down to a board and added the watercolour. I used purple going into pink/red that goes into yellow and finally green in the bottom right hand corner. I thought these colours would work well for an autumn card and also go well with the tone of the embossing powder. I added the watercolour in layers, deepening the colour as I went. I then set the piece aside to dry.
Once dry, I removed the masking tape and stamped the sentiment from the WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquets: Ranunculus set using Archival Ink. The piece was adhered flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner.

I am not usually a fan of gold tones but I really love the colour of this embossing powder, it is like a softer honey-ish tone of gold. Really pretty! For this card, I was inspired by a previous card that I had made as part of an Online Card Classes class. For more inspiration using WOW Embossing Powder, please do check out their blog. Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you have a great day!
