Misty Embossing

I wanted to go ahead and post this tutorial to get any mojo started! :D

This is a SUPER easy way to emboss WITHOUT embossing ink...yes, that is right!

First, I cut out the flowers with my Cricut. You can use whatever you like, this works well with card stock.

For this layout, I used the sort of dusty rose colored card stock, I misted it with Moon Shadow Mist in Gossamer Gold and Starburst Mist in Wild Honey Coral.

While still wet, I sprinkled the Lindy's Gold Embossing Powder over the flowers and let it sit a moment. I lightly tapped of the excess and heated. It gives a random embossed effect to the petals!
