I made another Christmas card for my stash - and used layers of embossing powders on the trees.
Here's a photo of the watercolor panels that I thickly embossed with 3 powders - Ranger Gold, Ranger Copper and Patina Oxide from Emerald Creek.
I die cut the tree three times. The embossed powder was so thick, it was a little difficult to get it out of the die and you can see on the middle piece where some of the enamel came off, but I used the tree anyway! Then I decided to turn the panel over and die cut from the paper side - and that worked a little better (see tree on right below).
Next time I do this technique - I'll die cut the piece first and then do the layered embossing!

I used layered embossing, stamping and die cuts.
