Wipe the floral petals over with an anti-static bag. Apply the WOW embossing pen to random areas of the petals, sprinkle the embossing powders over the sticky ink, then ensuring your heat tool is already HOT, heat set the powder, moving the tool as soon as the powder turns. 

Alternatively, you can use a sparkle pen, or Stickles, to add a touch of sparkle to the petals.
