These are also cards for my next class, and this will be a new technique for everyone. I've heat embossed a floral background with white embossing powder, then added some ink blended Distress Ink colours to create a pretty background. On the blue/green card I've also added a further effect by adding some water droplets to 'bleach' the ink a little.
Since these backgrounds are so beautiful, I didn't want to cover them too much, or distract from them, so i just added a simple die cut in black card.
I've had to do a little preparation for the class to enable us to do this technique, since we discovered at a previous class that using heat guns sets off the fire alarms at The Holiday Inn! So I've done the stamping and heat embossing in advance :)
