In the process of tidying my craft room, I came across abackground paper off-cut.  It was too good to bin, so I decided to use it for this card.  The colours are made using wet Brusho paint, saturating the card and then blotting with a paper towel to remove the excess water.  

Top Tip:  Before you apply your embossing powder, remember to drag an anti-static bag over the surface you will be embossing.  It helps to stop stray specks of powder sticking to areas where you don't want it.

I decided to use the Funky Fossil Designs "Bold Damask Stencil".  I used a Wow! Clear embossing pad, through the taped down stencil.

After removing the stencil, I covered the surface with a Wow! Embossing Powder called "Silent Night" - it is made up of black and silver.  Shook the surplus off onto a sheet of paper and then used a heat gun to set the embossing powder.

This is the result I got.  I've taken two photos so you can see the difference in the card when the light hits the embossing. In the lower photo you can just make out the black flecks within the silver.

I used a Spellbinders die called Renaissance Jubilee Tags to cut the intricate black background for the word invitation.
