Elements of Style Anniversary Card

I really like this "Elements of Style" stamp set. I thought I would play with some embossing powder with it. I originally was going to emboss it in black and do some coloring but I'll save that for another day.
This time I played with black card stock and silver embossing powder. The base of this card is Brushed Silver and so is the scalloped layer.
I stamped the image with VersaMark and then embossed it with the silver powder. I heat set it and taped it in place on the silver card stock. I used glue dots to set it in place. I find that the tape doesn't stick as well, it needs something a bit stickier. The Sticky Strip would work too but the glue dots were already sitting out! I also used them on the silver scallop piece. This card is not coming apart!!
The words were done on the computer and punched out. This is a great card if you need to make something quick that doesn't look like it was whipped together in no time at all!
I think it would be fun to try out the bleaching technique on the flowers and then color in some of them with vibrant colors. I'll have to give that a try sometime. Or you give it a try and show me your finished item!
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
