Mixed embossing ...

 I have a friend who has just flown off to Paris, France .... * sigh *
She is spending the next two months in Europe, so that called for a card to say "Bon Voyage"!
I wanted to send her Something special before she left...
 You would call this technique: Mixed Embossing...
I have mixed embossing powders with dazzling diamonds and used more than one.
Not difficult, you just have to sweep up between dustings, and don't sneeze.
Firstly, I stamped the Eiffel tour in Versamark ink
 and dusted it with black embossing powder.
But, before heating it, I sprinkled just a touch of dazzling diamonds glitter onto it and then warmed it with my Embossing heat gun.
The embossing powder melts and sticks the dazzling diamonds with it.
Contiinuing on I stamped the Artistic Etchings crown in versamark and covered it with gold embossing powder, heated it...
and stamped another image with versamark and covered them with clear embossing powder.
Now I stamped the French folliage words and the medallion  in Soft suede and Early espresso as a background.
Finishing with a sponge of Soft Suede ink around the edges.
A few pearls and rhinestones for bling and ... Voila!
Mixed embossing - it looks quite shabby - vintage ... is that a term?
