Embossing - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
A blogging friend said to me recently that they like visiting my blog because she never knows what she's going to see as I make cards in so many different styles! I'm hoping that's a good thing as I don't always know what style I am going to create in until it happens lol.

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is -

& this week the design team are featuring

Wow! logo

on our cards.
If you have them we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to enter our challenge.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

My card today features some lovely opaque white embossing powder by WOW. 
I am a big fan of white embossing powder & have 5 different brands of white embossing powder so thought I would use silver for a change, but I wasn't happy with it so out came the good old white again.

The pretty flower stamps are from Simon Says Stamps Best Mom Ever stamp set & have been stamped in Versamark Watermark ink, heat embossed & coloured with copics. I then fussy cut them & gave them the lovely glitter treatment, attached some leaves & then gently curved the flowers & popped them onto my nestie die cuts.

For the background I've heat embossed Impression Obsessions French Text stamp onto Ranger Speciality card stock & then water coloured the background & added a few flicks of copic opaque white here and there & also a few flicks of water colour paint.

I'd seen on several cards on Pinterest the sentiment had been embossed / stamped on a black background with white embossing powder or ink & I liked how the sentiment looked so thought I'd give it a try & I do like the result so will be doing this again.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
