Eye of the Beholder Card

This month's challenge theme is "Color Layering"  My layers include stamping the definition in permanent black ink.  Then I used embossing ink with clear embossing powder to create the splattered pattern in the background. I gently blended oxide inks to add color and make the embossing pop. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
