  1. Stamp flamingo with Versamark ink.  Sprinkle Magenta embossing powder on left side and pour off excess to the left side (so that the embossing powder doesn't get onto the rest of the image).  Heat emboss.
  2. Sprinkle Raspberry Ice embossing powder onto center of image and pour off excess down.  Heat emboss.
  3. Sprinkle Rubelite embossing powder onto right side of image and pour off excess to the right.  Heat emboss.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I haven't taken the time to play much with my embossing powders lately, so it was great fun to take them out and make this colorful card.  I hope you join me this month and try multi-colored embossing.
