Girls just wanna have fun - embossed clothing (All Dressed Up images)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my last card for tonight, thank you so much if you've checked all 5 cards out! 

I used an All Dressed Up image set and instead of colouring their outfits with Copics I decided to use silver, white and green embossing powders. I used a fine paint brush and my embossing ink refiller - to carefully paint on the embossing ink one colour at a time, add the powder and heat-set it before doing the next colour. I feel it was half successful in the end but I did have to go around the images with my fine black marker to define the outfits once totally dry. I think practice would make perfect so I will try again in the future.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - embossing (heat embossed their outfits)
All Dressed Up - anything goes
AllSorts - embossing (heat embossed their outfits)
As you like it - fave colour - black, I love the sophistication it brings to cards. It also makes the other colours pop.
Come and Get it - make it square
Crafty Catz - anything goes with optional twist: CAS 
Creatalicious -  anything goes with optional for the girls
De Egel - use black
Fab N Funky - lovely ladies
