Inkspirational #292 - Designer's Choice - Emboss your Background

I am the hostess of the Inkspirational #292 Challenge
and I am asking everyone to Emboss Your Background!
either using embossing powder (wet embossing) or using an embossing folder (dry embossing!)

I used wet embossing, inking my stamp with Versamark Ink, stamping the image on the card panel,  covering the panel with black embossing powder, shaking off the extra powder and then heating with my heat tool!

I used the same beautiful floral cover stamp on my three card samples, Daisy Days, from Unity. 

Love, love, love this stamp!

For my first card - I embossed the image on a white panel using black embossing powder.  Then I sponged over the blooms with Ranger Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin.  I added gold to the flower centers and gold splatter over the panel using a gold Paint Marker.  I also splattered with a black POSCA Pen.  I trimmed down the panel and layered it over a black panel die cut with Nested Rectangle with Square Holes die from Rubbernecker.

I used the same technique as above for this second card but I didn't add any color to the petals,
just the gold and black splatter.

For my third card, I embossed the image with white embossing powder over a black card panel.  I added orange, green and pink splatters with POSCA pens and used a Raspberry Fizz card panel for the framing.

Please join us and link up your embossed cards!  You'll find the challenge and lots of inspiration from the rest of the Design Team at Inkspirational
