Follow your dreams : Mixed Media art

Hello our dear crafty friends !
This is my Mixed Media project that I made with  Die- Versions dies, 3L adhesives and a lot of WOW! Embossing powders.

The whole project today was an experiment as I never used so much adhesives combined with embossing powders and dies  and some of the effects are cool, some are hard to make and some were just impossible  and not even added to this piece.
So here we go!

I used the thick white cardstock as my " canvas" and  Collage stamp was stamped around with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Bright White powder.
As a next step I  randomly added a lot of glue strips inside the white space using 3-L E-Z runner. Then I heat embossed the strips with Primary Sunny Yellow and Peach Gleam. The result was lovely, but then, as it often happens with Mixed Media layers, it became almost not seen, but as a texture and a bit of yellow rays under the brick wall that I made later.
The brick wall was made with a Die- Versions Bricks Background die  and 3-L Adhesive permanent Sheets.

I die cut the white cardstock over this great and really working adhesive sheet and then used the cut (still with the paper backing) and VersaMark ink to make my background brick wall with Paprika powder.Then I added a few big 3D Foam Squares and heat on the left side of the piece and heat embossed them with the same powder. Sorry, as I said before: not much seen after the outer layers.
 As the die cut was already covered with embossing ink I heat embossed it with Opaque Vanilla White powder and  adhered in two pieces to make my outer brick wall.
The next use of 3L products was those to add some 3D Dotz  around and to heat emboss them with Ruby Romance powder. In between all those layers I used Gelatos, mists and inks to make this colourful textural background.
The main  Butterfly Flourish  die was cut twice. The lower layer was cut with 3d Foam White creative sheet and also the cut was easy, as the die is very delicate it was a hard work to release all small pieces from inside. I am sure that using less delicate die makes the work easier. The second problem with this  foam cut was when I heat embossed it with Olive and Chartreuse, Sherbert, Sunny Yellow  and Ruby Romance powders: it shrinked! Also I really love the result the flowers and the butterflies are much smaller that they were originally.
So I made another regular paper cut, coloured and heat embossed with Clear  Gloss Regular embossing powder and added over the first die cut layer.
The sentiment from the same stamp set was added and my art piece was all done.
