All embossed dream of mine: tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my blog!

This is a Mixed Media card tutorial with quite a few techniques for you to try here.

Supply list:
Cardstock:  Light blue-American Crafts
Stamps: Dream Big set- Unity; 1''Rail Fence set A-Ann Butler for Kellycraft
Inks: VersaMark- Tsukineko;Clearsnap Aquamarine and Black
Embossing powders: Clear embossing, Ebony Black, Metallic Copper, Rich Gold, Brass
Dies- Cardmaker set- Cherry Lynn Designs
Other: white chipboard
How to make this card:
1. Make a basic card with light blue cardstock.  Die cut a frame using two dies and white thin chipboard.
2. Cover the frame with VersaMark ink and few layers of  Ebony black embossing powders. Add some gold, brass and another metal powders over the black embossed layer and heat it again. Stamp into the hot covered frame with a strip from the Rail Fence set until you get the right look of the frame.
3. Stamp Butterflies and the sentiment with VersaMark over the inside cut chipboard panel from the previous step and heat emboss with black powder.  Reheat and do it 3-4 times more to get this embossed look of butterflies.  Ink the stamped images with a light coat of Aquamarine ink. Add a few drops of reinker in the same color and heat emboss whatever is wet with a think layer of clear powder.
4. Glue the inner panel and the outer frame over the basic card.
