Multi colour embossing......by Miranda




Hello there,

My name is Miranda and this time I am a guestdesigner for the WOW blog! Of course I love the WOW products and I work a lot with them. I want to show you the cards which have been made for a WOW workshop at the Posthumus shop in Amsterdam. We've used a lot of embossingpowders and at the end of the day we had a very sparkly floor and a lot of fun!
The participants could choose out of 5 themes and colour combinations;
Colourful India
Vibrant India
Peacock Glam
Perfect Paisley
Seabreeze
Warm Earth
Just some names I made up for the combinations of different embossing powders.
Here is the first one........made on pink paper and with these WOW colours;
Primary Mandarin
Fluor Tickled Pink
    Magical Mauve glitter
Princess Pink glitter
made with the the Indian stamps of Chocolate Baroque, the edges of the main panel are embossed too. This multi colouring technique requires, focus, patience and precision. You can imagine what happens when you put the powder in the wrong jar....ooops maybe it will be a great mix but not the intention at the moment!
