Emboss resist flower

Hello again :) I'm back with this weeks Bellarific Friday challenge card. This weeks challenge was all about embossing. I could not decide if I wanted to heat emboss or dry emboss, so I did both ;)
So I started by heat embossing the carnation flower head stamp on watercolor paper with off white wow embossing powder. I then used some distress stains in orange marmalade, fired brick and barn door, to color it in. I also colored another one in with peeled paint. Next I sprayed the both pieces with perfect pearl water. While that was drying I embossed my card base with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder and then rubbed some vintage photo distress ink over it to accentuate the dots.  Next I die cut the banner with my Die-namics fishtail flag stax. I lightly rubbed some distress ink over this and heat embossed the sentiment on to it.  I attached this to the card base. Next, I cut the flower out and cut apart the green one to make leaves. I attached the leaves to the side of the flower and popped it onto the banner with dimensional tape.  Lastly, I added some pearls to the center. 

Well, that's it for bellarific friday. Next weeks challenge is another sketch challenge, using this sketch:
I hope you can play along too. If you do, e-mail your entries to Emily by Thursday.

I hope you are all having a great start to the Summer. We have been having lots of fun and really enjoying the sun.  I'll be back to share another card soon:)
