Technique Thursday

Today's card is my Daughter's Birthday Invitation, she is having a Hawaiian Turtle Party. I first embossed the turtle with Black Embossing powder, then the Jellyfish with Whit embossing powder. I used the stampin' markers to colour the turtle with Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, and Pear Pizzazz. Then I embossed it with Clear Embossing powder, this was to ensure that when sponging the background I didn't get ink on the turtle, it also makes the turtle really shiny and pop! The background is then sponged with Soft Suede for the sand, then Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party, then a light sponge of Old Olive all over for a blue/green ocean. Then there is a couple more jellyfish stamped and embossed with Clear Embossing powder. Not pictured is the invitation wording that I print on Vellum and adhere to the inside of the card. With all the Embossing on this card make sure you use your embossing buddy so you don't have embossing powder where you do not want it.
