Embossing on Dark Backgrounds

Something I love about Lindy's Stamp Gang's embossing powders is that they are not your usual embossing powders. The mica in them make them shimmer so beautifully, and depending on how the light shines on them, you see a difference in their look on your project.  I just think that's pretty neat, and one way I like to use them and get a really cool effect on my projects, is by using them on dark backgrounds. 

This is a card I made for my husband using Lindy's Stamp Gang's embossing powder in the color Spring Leaf Chartreuse, with a Hero Arts background stamp on black card stock. I love the texture the embossing brings to the card, as well as the subtle shimmer.
The flower accents you see are handmade by me using needlepoint fabric, cork, Stickles and some Petaloo petals. For the leaves I used some skeleton leaves and regular green leaves from I've promised a tutorial of these on my YT Channel, and I'm working to get that uploaded there soon. If you are interested in learning how to make these, which are not bulky, and are a great accent for your cards, scrapbooking projects and altered items, subscribe to my YT Channel so you don't miss the tutorial video. They are simple to make, but they entail a few steps.
I used some metal accents which I stained using my alcohol inks, and added some flat back pearls, as well as some adhesive "brad-looking" accents in the corners to finish the card off. Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
