Make it Bright

When it comes embossing, I'm a liability.
I usually overdo it and end up burning the paper.
This is why I only have a few powders - white, clear, gold and hot pink!!
Hmmm.. hot pink! I never  thought I would use that - and then I saw the challenge at


 Someone is getting a bright card this year :-)

After stamping and embossing I needed a little image, or just something to add  interest,
and, after a rummage, I came across this little, chipboard bird.
I inked it up and covered it in hot pink embossing powder.
I had to retrieve the bird from under my crafting table a few times,
when the embossing gun blew it about, but I finally got it done and stuck down :-)
It's not easy to photo bright colours - IRL that pink is glowing :-)
