Clean and Simple technique with colorful results

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again and this is our Art Deco month.
Art deco -  A decorative and architectural style of the period 1925-1940, characterised by geometric designs, bold colours, and the use of plastic and glass. 
This article  had been published in UK Craft Stamper August 2013 issue and this is the same article here for you.
So I will show you some great technique that can make a 10 minutes artistic card.I am totally not sure it is Art Deco, but it's as close to it as  I could craft and I really wanted to share this easy technique that was  print published by me in August 2013 issue of UK Craft Stamper magazine.
This is  my own fast stamping and embossing techniques and all you need are great huge background stamps , StazOn inks and good embossing powder. That's it. Not more then 10 minutes to make am artsy card. And as WOW! Embossing Powders have those great background stamps and sure have great embossing powders, that's all you need.
So here we go.
1. Stamp  a big stamp over cream cardstock with embossing ink. I used slightly coloured embossing ink , so you see it a bit coloured.  I used WOW!Embossing Powders Brocade and Flowers stamps on those cards. Heat emboss it with  Clear Gloss embossing powder and let it be cool.
2. Make 3 circle sizes template over a leftover cardstock with 3 circle punches . You can also use dies or any other circle cutting system. Then put the template over your card and wipe Blazing  Red,  Azure Blue and  Mustard Yellow Staz-On inks inside the circle. Three primary colours will do all possible rainbow colours  you see.
Trim the cardstock and make your card layers.
3. The sentiment were both heat embossed with Black Ebony embossing powder, also one is a chipboard title and the second is made of foam letters. I made one embossed layer over foam letters (was afraid of the extra heat) and 3 layers over the chipboard.
Make some white pen stitches and  your card are finished.

Brocade - Clear Stamp

Flowers - Clear Stamp

I think it's a really cool technique to use and WOW! Embossing Powders have  much more of those huge stamps you can use at once and to make more lovely 10 minutes artistic cards.
