WOW! Silk Road Embossing Powder Trio - Inspired by Gwen Lafleur
The WOW! Silk Road Embossing Powder Trio inspired by Gwen Lafleur (me!) features three colors, Chinese Lantern, Pomegranate, and Silk Brocade. These were inspired by my travels along the old Silk Road and feature both semi-translucent and opaque powders perfect for handmade cards and tags, scrapbooking, art journaling, and more.
Continuing on the journey, we come to the "Stans" - a string of beautiful and exotic countries that comprise the bulk of the length of the Silk Road. In Tajikstan, pomegranate season brings baskets of this delicious fruit piled high in stalls all throughout the local markets. The ripe skin of the fruit is captured beautifully in the Pomegranate embossing powder; deep reds are flecked with honey and gold and it comes out beautifully opaque in your work.
Finally, this Trio wouldn't be complete without its namesake, Silk Brocade. This glossy, semi-transparent powder shimmers with a metallic undertone and the mulberry color reflects the blossoms of the tree that's home to the precious silk worm that was (and still is,) at the heart of the silk trade.
