ATC - Craft Stamper challenge 3

I have been dithering for a while about entering the Craft Stamper challenge, using the embossing powder background technique.  Tomorow is the closing date, so I have taken the plunge :-)

I swiped an ATC blank with versamark and applied embossing powder in four shades of blue and aqua.  Then I overstamped the bubbles background (Lost Coast Designs) using detail white embossing powder.  The Hero Arts tree stamp - used in sections - makes an interesting, almost seaweed-y effect, embossed in the darkest shade of blue.  Finally I stamped the Prima sentiment using black Stazon.

The ATC is actually straight along all sides - the photo has exaggerated the slight warping caused by the multiple embossing!

I like this technique, it's a little fiddly, but the results are very effective :-)

EDIT 5/8: Craft Stamper chose this project for the Top Three!!!!  I am so thrilled :-)
