Addicted to CAS, CAS on Sunday and Allsorts

I haven't played for a wee while as we have been a way for break in Pitlochry, but when I saw the challenges for Addicted to Cas was vellum and Cas on Sunday was for embossing as was the Allsorts challenge just knew I had to play along as have been dying to try these techniques that I saw on Jennifer McGuires blog. 
The techniques are to make your own sparkly embossing powder  then heat emboss as usual ,mine is a bit patchy but not too noticeable in RL as the ink shines through it ..handy :)...I chose to do it on vellum using SU's reason to smile gerbera set and then used another technique where I coloured the back of the vellum in different shades so that it shines through. Jennifer's looked fantastic ,mine well first tried it with promarkers didnt work too pale so used SU markers instead better but not enough shades but ok, then I fussy cut it out and stuck it on to a panel that I had stamped with a partial SU flowering flourish (love this set sooo versatile!) added a sentiment as close to the blues colours that I could.
Here is a close up of the flower hopefully you can see the vellum and the sparkle a bit better!

Thanks for taking the time to look
