Embossed Birthday Flower

I've been having some fun with heat embossing techniques lately.  Here's a birthday card I made.  It was quite simple and fun to do.

I stamped the Penny Black flower and Hot off the Press sentiment with Versamark ink, then heat embossed them in black on watercolour paper.  I then scribbled over the page with 3 metallic gelatos: blue, purple and silver.  I spritzed the page and then rubbed a sponge over the gelatos to cover the page fully and blend the colours.  Once it was dry I glue taped the image to a light purple card.

I like the lavender color a lot.
