Dynamic Duos #66 and Seize the Birthday Anything Goes

IMG_2149


Happy Saturday friends and it is time for this week's new colour duo at Dynamic Duos!
This week is a Black Tie week and I have to say that these colours are lovely together:




For my card I used the Hero Arts Leafy Vines cling stamp for my background. and embossed the Pretty Peonies butterfly with clear embossing powder.

I love to emboss with clear embossing powder, it is definitely more forgiving than a colour.
I am also entering this into the current Seize the Birthday challenge.
Do you like embossing more using clear or coloured powder?

Stunning color combination and stunning card! That leafy image makes me want to go running to find that stamp! And I definitely like using clear embossing powder best. Ink up my stamp in Versamark, then ink it again in my color of choice (be sure to clean your stamp before inking in VM again!!!) and then stamp and emboss with clear EP. That way I don't have to purchase a bunch of different colors of EP!!!
