Card with flowers "Make A Wish"

Hello, everyone!
Today it is Victoria here with inspiration in turquoise and blue colours. I created a card, inspired by an early spring - cold, with ice and snow from time to time.
First of all I took a piece of watercolour paper 10x14 cm in size and covered it with a clear acrylic medium through the stencil. While the medium was still wet, I poured WS125 Under the Sea embossing powder. When the medium became dry, I heat set the powder with a WOW! Heat Tool - Euro and got a great, raised texture. I sprayed it with a turquoise aqua spray and the embossing powder created resist effect. Then I added lace to the background.
Also I die-cut two borders out of white cardstock, covered it with embossing ink using Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and applied two coats of WH19 Bluetiful embossing powder. Also I die cut another wide border, stamped the pattern from Sparkle & Shine (by Maya Isaksson) - Clear Stamp Set and used the same WH19 Bluetiful powder. I took a few drops of turquoise aqua spray on a piece of plastic and smooched it onto the border piece. Then I adhered these elements to the background. 
I wanted to create more layers, so I used a scrap of white cardstock, an embossing folder with stripes pattern, applied some embossing ink on the raised area of the folder and sent it through my machine. Right after that I took WS125 Under the Sea embossing powder and applied it on the paper (the powder stuck only to the area, where the ink was) and heat set. Then I die-cut a circle of this element, a slightly bigger circle from white cardstock and glued them together. Also I stamped the sentiment  from Make A Wish - ME Clear Stamp Set (masking a part of it) on a die-cut banner with embossing ink and WH00 Ebony powder. And I added colour, using the same turquoise aqua spray and blue spray.
I love projects with lots of details, so I started to embellish my card. I covered die-cut leaves with embossing ink and WS125 Under the Sea and WH19 Bluetiful embossing powders. Also I die-cut chloe stems and covered them with WA01 Clear Gloss - Ultra High embossing powder, that gives you amazing shine and dimension. Also I stamped a dandelion and embossed with WL01 Bright White - Super Fine powder - and added blue spray to reveal the image on white paper. Then I decided to add chipboard flowers to the composition and covered them with WL01 Bright White - Regular powder.
I wanted to add more interesting details, so I used Wow Melt-It! Powder, mixed it with WH19 Bluetiful embossing powder in Wow! Foil Melt-It Case, melted it and filled Shabby Rose - Silicone Mould and Feathers - Silicone Mould. I added the rose and feather to my flower composition. 
To make my handmade flowers more realistic I added dew drops with Glossy accents.
And to tie the whole composition together I added white acrylic primer with a brush here and there and made little splashes of it.
I think that embossing powders added great sparkle and shine to my card, and also I loved the process of melting and the result.
I hope, that your days days are warm and sunny, enjoy this spring and create something beautiful!
