Hello! I hope your week has been going well.....

There is a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero - to use embossing, wet or dry on your card.

I love using embossing powder - it always look like magic when it melts :)

I have used Hero Art's Tiny Flags stamp and white embossed it.  I have used distress inks to watercolour the background - chipped sapphire, salty ocean, broken china and tumbled glass.  I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant's fab Hustle set.  I like the pooling of colours that the watercolouring gives between the embossed triangles.

On this card I have white embossed part of Hero Arts Zig Zag background and used a sentiment from Mama Elephant's Smitten set.  A few pearls and strip of dark blue cardstock to finish.
I hope you will play along with the challenge - I look forward to seeing what you create :)
Remember there is a great prize from our fab sponsors:

And Mama Elephant have offered to give 2 stamp sets away as well :)
Happy crafting!  Thanks for stopping by :)
