Experimenting with a new technique of printing (using an ink jet printer) onto shiny card, I created the artwork using two colours of Embossing Powder. I experimented with different card to achieve this technique... some types of card absorbs the ink too quickly and so can't be embossed so it really is trial and error to find which works. Another tip when using this technique is to work quickly... as soon as the card comes out of the printer sprinkle the powder over and heat emboss quickly. Also, be careful not to handle the card too much as the oil from your fingers sits on the surface of the shiny card and the embossing powder will stick to this also creating unwanted smudges.
I used two colours of embossing powder so I printed the quote first and used Wow! Black Twinkle Embossing Powder to emphasize the sparkle quote and then I put the artwork through the printer again (the same way round) and used Wow! Black Ebony Embossing Powder in superfine on the rest of artwork. The final result looks great and even better framed!
