Wow! Embossing Powders - Day 2

Hi there! 
Believe it or not I am back! Yesterday I showed you what I got up to at the weekend (you can find the post HERE). You didn't get to see the whole lot of crafty goodness I got to play with so I am back today to show you more and do hope you like it... 

I made a fun artsy card using my Brushos (I adore the stuff!). The front panel was stamped with my background Hero Arts Clock stamp and heat embossed using the gorgeous Metallic Copper EP. The inside of the clocks was bleached for contrast and the edges sponged using the Walnut Stain Distress ink...

 The finished card after bleaching... 

 The little wooden ornamental frame (Docrafts) was simply sponged around the edges and left totally natural to match the bleached out colour on my background. The butterfly was die cut but the bits left in and heat embossed using the same EP. Quite easy to replicate this card although you would get a very original version each time due to the nature of the Brusho crystals. But that's what is so fun about this! Just play and have fun with it! 

I will be back soon so stay tuned!
