This looks fantastic! How do you achieve this effect with the embossing powders - do you brush them on?

Thank you! First I stamped the image using a normal ink pad, and a stamp positioning tool - like a MISTI or similar. Then I worked out which parts I wanted to be which colours. Then I took a Wow embossing pen (any embossing pen would work), and started colouring in the all the parts that I wanted sparkly red. Then I heat set those areas with the heat gun. Then I moved onto all the areas I wanted pearlised red, and repeated the process. You keep on doing this until it's all coloured in. Then you put the card back in your stamp positioning tool and re-stamp the image - this time using black stazon ink - so that the ink stays on top of the heat embossed parts. xx

Thanks so much for all the detail with this technique. I have an embossing pen but I suspect I need a new one! I will definitely give this a go!
