Pearl lustre lapis embossing.

Hi everyone, I've been sidetracked all weekend from what I am supposed to be doing, and the card I am supposed to be making!

I'm using a pearl embossing powder that I haven't used for ages. Here's a better look.

Love the metallic blue look.

The theme over at AAA Cards is to use your favourite technique.
I love embossing, and use it on nearly it can make colouring easier.
Embossing or even double embossing diecut shapes and sentiments is also fun, although the powder can get flighty!

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's make a mark.
I used prismacolour pencils for the butterfly.

At Seize The Birthday the toppings option is vibrant colours.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the challenge is to add some texture.
I've added a shiny texture to the sentiment and just a touch of stickles to the butterfly wings.
