I love to emboss my images with gold embossing powder. It gives the image a rich finish and also helps to stay within the lines when you are coloring.

I have never added flowers to my cards, but thanks to you I will definitely be adding some from now on.

Thank you for all your help and inspiration.

Embossing is one of my favourite techniqhes too and I agree it does bring a richness to your cards.

The powder comes in many colours and it is always worth expeimneting wiht them for another look to your cards.

There ia really thick one called Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) that gives an amzing effect and can be used for all sorts of items.

Try creating you own buttons from this product but punch the holes in them before you add the UTEE.

That way you will be able to thread ribbon or twine through them to attach them to your cards.

I have used UTEE before to do a technique called "Faux Cloisoné" It made quite a punch on my card.
