Rita Barakat/Emerald Creek Embossing Powder Fun!

Hello there! Today the Rita Barakat Design Team are sharing projects in a blog hop using the new embossing powders at Emerald Creek Crafts.
If you didn't arrive here from the beginning of the hop here is the order and links!

Be sure to join Rita and the team for Mixed Media Monday on September 3rd for the giveaway! Every comment along the hop is an entry to win a set of 4 of these amazing powders!

For my project I have created a fun little tag using one of Rita's die cuts and an adorable wooden mushroom embellishment from Plaid.
The embossing powder I chose is Mermaid Fin.

The tag was painted with white gesso and once it was dry a woodgrain background stamp was used to create the background. It was stamped in green ink and then embossed with clear powder and heat set. A few spritzes of blue spray ink were added.

After coating the mushroom in gesso, I applied embossing ink followed by the Mermaid Fin powder and set with my heat tool. Just look at all that beautiful glitter!
The fairy die-cut was adhered using foam adhesive squares by Scrapbook Adhesives.

A big blue ribbon and sentiment stickers were the final touch!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and joining us for some inspiration!
