Take it, Make It challenge Three!

Its that time again folks...the new Craft Stamper Blog Challenge has been announced!!
This time the featured technique is all about embossing powder.... and the fabulously colourful backgrounds you can create with it!
The technique is featured on page 30-31 of the July 2013 issue of the magazine, with a gorgeous project by Birgit Koopsen, its really worth a look!
My project is this small panel...
Every last little bit of colour on this is embossing powder..... and I had a great time playing trying to achieve the effect! The base was very simply covered with a mixture of blue and green powder, and I kept on adding sprinkles here and there and melting the powder until I had a look I liked! I also added tiny dots of white powder to get the splattery look I love!
The red dots and the black lines are created by using a stencil... sponge versamark through the stencil then add the powder on top! Very easy but soooooo effective!
Even the edges are embossing powder. The sponged look is achieved by gently rubbing away some of the loose powder before melting, to give a softer and more blurred look..
I added a Stampers Anonymous figure, and a phrase cut out of a book to finish...
This is such a cool technique to try, why not hop on over to the Challenge post to see all the details, and join in! Not only could you win three great stamps from Indigo Blu, you could end up published in the magazine!!!
Good Luck!
