Crafty Zooming - Heat embossed background

Hi everyone, there's a new Crafty technique blog out there called Group of Seven. Every month we will check out a new or old technique and post our results.
This month it's a creative Heat Embossed background, Versamark was applied randomly over a piece of card stock. I used cling wrap for my cards and one colour of Embossing powder
Our Group of Seven consists of the following wonderful crafters.



Here are some other background I made to add to my stash. I tried the technique on different coloured card stock and different mixes of embossing powders.


This is one I made adding shine and texture to black card which made for a pretty night sky.
