40 Colors of Flowers

Another card which I created for Creative University to show different ways to use embossing with your creative projects.     

A fairly simple card to create.  The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from the 4 My Friend set and is embossed using Cotton Candy Pigment ink and Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  Some beautiful patterned papers from the Chantilly kit create a very feminine background.  

The other embossing on the card is not so obvious.  The two colored flowers that you see are actually clear acrylic flowers included in the Claire Assortment to coordinate with the Claire paper packet.  To add color to the flowers, simply press a color of Pigment ink directly onto the flower and then emboss using the Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  Magically, you have a colored flower.  The best part is that all 40 Exclusive Colors from CTMH are available as Pigment ink, so you can create flowers in 40 different colors.  The Pigment inks are sold as 1"x1" mini pads - 10 colors to a set for only $19.95.
