Wise Men from Afar - emboss resist

I must admit that when I ordered this stamp set I couldn't wait to use it,
but inspiration failed me, and I have had to resort to Pinterest, where I
found a card by Norah Marin, but have been unable to find her blog.

This is my card that I have cased from Norah's.



Using Versamark, I stamped the 3 Wise Men,  then with Black embossing powder,   heat embossed.
The stars were inked with versamark, then  heat embossed with White embossing powder.
Palm trees  and sand dunes stamped with Soft Suede ink.
Sand sponged with Sahara Sand ink.
Sky sponged with Night of Navy
Space in between sponged with Real Red and  So Saffron.

Thanks for the inspiration Norah, couldn't have done this without you!
