Cheerful stamp pad challenge 85: use embossing powder - second week

This is the second week of the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 85: use embossing powder - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and click here to join in the challenge, which is being sponsored by Stamp on it.

I used one of my favourite stamps 'gracious lady' by Hero Arts, inking with memento tuxedo black and colouring with spectrum noir alcohol pens. I then swiped the whole stamped image with versamark and using clear embossing powder I triple embossed it. It is much glossier than it looks in the photos. I matted the image on to a feather and then on to the spotted paper to go inside the 'box' piece of the card. The box folds flat for postage as seen in the third picture (paperclips just to hold it for the photo). All papers were from my offcuts box. The box card blank was from Creata.

I was commissioned to make this card for a friend to give to his wife.
