Warning! Embossing Powder overload!!! Actually, I only used three different embossing powders but almost everything is covered with them :) I had so much fun to play with Koi Pond Friends Digi919 Digital Stamp Set.

This pretty fish is one of the pre-colored images from the Koi Pond Friends Digital set (it will come as an outline image as well so you can color it yourself too). I printed and fussy cut it out, inked it with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed the body and fins with Sparkle Embossing Powder. Then I added the same ink to the entire image and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. To add dimension, I covered its body with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops and let it dry.
The sentiment is from the same digital stamp set. It's printed out and cut to the size to fit my card. I inked entire sentiment strip with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. To get a nice thick and smooth surface, I added three layers of embossing powder. It is important to heat set them each layer at a time. A final layer, I inked it again with Clear Mark ink and sprinkled Robin's Egg Embossing Powder to its corners. I melted the powder with the heat tool from underneath, otherwise, the white speckles will fly off. Some white got on top of the words. To fix it, I took a black permanent marker and colored them on top of the letters.
Digital stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle will come various colored images. I love to make pattern papers with them. I placed several fishes next to each other to light blue background by rotating them. After printing it out, I trimmed the paper in suitable size and inked the edges with Broken China Distress Ink. Then I pressed the Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink all over to my pattern paper and heat embossed it with Sparkle Embossing Powder. I did it twice to get nice coverage. I sprinkled Robin's Egg Embossing Powder here and there and heat embossed from underneath. It melted into the Sparkle Embossing Powder layer and gave an awesome effect. I wish you could see the background in person.
The bubbles are also pre-colored images from the Koi Pond Friends Digital set. I printed them a punch in various sizes. After fussy cutting, I covered them with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
Edges of the matting layers are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Blue Haze Microfine Glitter.
Thank you for the visit!
