Multi Colour Embossing with powder

Today was a bit tricky as class is focused on outline stamps, but I don't have any suited for this. Have ordered a stamp set for exactly this, but it hasn't arrived in the mail yet :o(
I have been checking the mailbox everyday in hopes it would turn up.
After some quick thinking I decided to go for a background stamp. So I have played with Jennifer McGuires technique "Multi color embossing" and an alphabet background stamp.
This is also a take on the Word Search from the other day.

First I inked up the background stamp with Versamark. Wiped off the edges with a wet tissue to get a gradient look.

Then used Jennifers trick with a cut over straw to carefully put on the pink embossing powder. Directly thereafter I applied (also with the straw) the other colour of embossing powder.

This card is with my first go at this. Very satisfied with it.
Had though a few touches which had to be re-powdered as Jennifer showed.

Thank you for watching :o)
