Crafty Cardmakers - Dry Embossing Spotlight

Hi Everyone

Here is my card for the design team for crafty cardmakers Dry embossing spotlight.

For this card, I started with starburst stains and other mica powder sprays and put them onto a sheet of acetate. I then used a brayer to transfer the colour onto the snowflake embossing folder, which I then rang though my cuttlebug. I allow the paper to dry and then added my micra powder to highlight the embossing and to further highlight I added stickles. I used a nestie to cut the window out. The images are magnolia - Winter day scene and the snowy fence. Which have been coloured in a combination of copic's, distress inks and Inktense pencils. I added flowersoft and stickles to them as well.

The flowers are paper flowers that I layered up and then used the scrunch technique to create the effect I wanted. I sprayed them with water and then added micra powder to them. Once dry I added stickles to them. The leaves are created using a punch and then I have added more stickles to them.  I have added beads to the arrange of flowers. 

I used a selection of beads and sequins for my shaker.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
