How To Make A Stunning Page Quick and Easy With Embossing

Today I have a new tutorial that shows you how to make a stunning page the quick and easy way. This process lets clear Embossing Powder steal the show with a Mixed Media twist. It's all the hard work of a messy fingers project without the drying time.
~ Special Event ~
My weekend in Tacoma with this dear friend was an exceptional experience. We relaxed, saw the sights, and reconnected over plenty of coffee. Blue Fern Studios new collection Spring Parade shares the emotions of that time with its pastel tones and garden images. These tags with the titles Special Event and Small Moments pulled it all together.
The sketch I used for this page has a background heart shape. I wanted to incorporate a Mixed Media element but didn't want to take the time for the layers to dry. I decided to put my Wow Embossing Powder to work and it was CLEARLY a success.
I made this sweet Teddy ATC to illustrate the process I used for the green tone-on-tone heart on my layout.
To begin I cut a heart shape from cardstock and taped it over my purple ATC blank. Over that I placed a stencil with a very open pattern. Finally I dabbed it heavily with clear embossing ink.
 I dusted my ATC with clear Wow Embossing Powder then heat set it.
 I again taped the heart shape over my purple ATC. I dribbled a darker purple mist onto a cotton round then rubbed it across the embossed surface. 
 The mist tinted only the bare paper and wiped off the embossing. The finished product offers a tone-on-tone Mixed Media background. The ATC took mere minutes to produce!
