Iron-Off Embossing......

It's another beautiful Spring day - blue sky and sunshine!  I should be out gardening but the call of my crafting was far greater and I needed to get my homework done for the One Layer Card 3 online course that I'm currently doing at Online Card Classes.  

So here goes!  This card is using the iron-off embossing technique.  I love the effect of the water colouring.  I have established that to make it work better for me I need to .... practise more!  My first attempt was with textured water colour paper and I could get the embossing powder off the card with the iron so I need some flat card.  My second attempt was better but the embossing powder I have is not very fine and I think the stamp I used needed finer powder to work.  Anyhow I have put the card together and I guess someone will enjoy receiving it!!

The edges aren't as crisp as I would like.
I used the following:

Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks
Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams Stamp set.
