Theme Thursday and GC38: Embossing Powder

Yesterday, Gingersnap Creations released their new Spicy Supply Challenge - Embossing Powder so I put that together with Theme Thursday's Hearts challenge to come up with this card. Hope you like it!

I did use embossing powder to create my card, but you won't find any embossing powder on it anymore. As we are also focusing on resist techniques, I used the embossing powder as a resist.

I started by using Versamark to stamp this pretty heart on white cardstock, then I covered the image in clear embossing and heat set it. I then sponged 3 different colors of pink over top and then overstamped the word "Bliss" on top of all that and added the sentiments. When I was done, I just placed the card under a piece of clean copy paper and applied a hot craft iron to remove the embossing powder.

The Heart that Loves
Stamps: Heart with Bow , Bliss and The Heart that Loves (Serendipity Stamps)
Cardstock: Whisper White (Stampin Up)
