Masking and white embossing powder

okay am sharing this card I made with a fabulous technique I saw somewhere a while ago and then promptly forgot about it and where I found it!
wanted to make a card with petals which are mainly cream but pink tips and did want a black or grey stamped image to spoil the softness of the colours so stamped the image in clear embossing ink, and sprinkled on some white embossing powder (got the titamium white EP from the purple gerbil on ebay - see link on the bnlog under my retail therapy section).
stamps were from here

... then coloured the image in with twinkling h2o's... cut and mounted the aperture layers one at a time so it was easier to do the matting on the borders, and used the rosebud CB folder on the pale pink.
ribbon is from stash and I have precious little of it left, and want more, so if anyone knows where to get some I would be delighted!!
