Catherine Pooler Giveaways Heat Embossing Water Coloring

Catherine Pooler and Wow Blog Hop with prizes

Welcome to the Catherine Pooler / Wow Embossing Powder blog hop! Loads of inspiration and prizes so make sure to hop along! The complete hop list is linked at the end of this post!  I chose to use some of the Colour Blends from Wow. The Colour Blend lines consists of powder blends that results in gorgeous colors and texture unique to any other. My first card features the Catherine Pooler BFF Background and the Perissa embossing powder.
I adore the metallic sheen and take a look at the sentiment. You can really see all the different powders blended in there! Absolutely stunning.
My next two cards feature the Medallion Mix it Up Stamp set , Verdigris (green), Iris (purple) and Perissa.
You can really see the sheen of the colors in the green and the metallic in the purple. This card features the powders on a black card base.
And this next card features the powders on a  white card base.
The pink is called Sweet Cheeks, lol.
