Elizabeth Bell, Thoughtful Breeze

Hello everyone, today I am sharing a card I made for the Quick Creations Design Team, using Elizabeth Bell's Thoughtful Breeze clear stamp.  She is so sweet, and Noelle was so kind to send her to me.  I tried something a little different, I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.  It gives such a cool effect, however, as you are about to find out, there are limitations on how this can be done.  But first, let's see the card :)

I decided to make this a clean and simple card, to let the image be the very focal point.  One of the considerations I discovered while making this piece, is that the lines of the stamp need to be very fine, so that you don't lose the details in the embossing.  As you can see, a lot of details were lost in this image :(  I still think she turned out ok, but in the future, I will pay closer attention as to which stamps I use for this technique.
