I cannot tell you how pleased I am with how my card share for today turned out. I think it is so rich and regal looking and I am completely in love with this look! I used Blackberry Bliss and Gold Glimmer papers. I seem to be on the gold kick lately, I'll keep riding it until it lasts. I actually made this card several weeks ago, just playing around whilst my hubby was watching the Superbowl... I think I was being much more productive than him - making cards instead of yelling at the TV. Any hooo....
I used one of my well-loved stamped images, the blossom from the Indescribable Gift stamp set. This set really does get a lot of use, and in my book equals a great purchase... check! Using Versamark and White Embossing Powder, I heat embossed to have a raised effect to the image. I coloured the lines with my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities Markers so the white didn't stand out too much. Then I decided to add some gold ink - using the Metallic Encore Gold Ink Pad, it gave a nice subtle look - but very shimmery and pretty. It was hard to tell from a direct on shot, so I tilted it so you can see what I mean.
I decided to add a bit more shine with some pretty punched out Gold Glimmer Butterflies using the Itty Bitty Butterfly Punch. I hope you like my card and have a super day!
