Hi, I've used a lot of silver ink and powder lately, so when I was out meandering around pinterest recently and saw this card by Kez at KB Papercraft blog I was struck by the beautiful blues and gold embossing. Thanks again for the inspiration Kez.
I inked up Darkroom Door's flourish background stamp with gold Versa color and used gold detail embossing powder. The powder seemed to take ages to melt and I thought I was going to scorch the card!
I cut a panel and coloured with a few blue distress inks.
The butterfly stamp is also Darkroom Door (thanks for the birthday pressie Mo!)
I stamped one on vellum but some of the embossing on the body started to crack. So I stamped another on white card distressed with tumbled glass and popped it under the vellum one.
I'm going to link up to a few challenges:
At Less is More the challenge is to use a metallic element and one other colour. I've used gold embossing
and snippets of gold paper.
At the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, the theme is to create with a flourish.
At Freshly Made Sketches there's still some time to join in with this sketch.
At Flutterby Wednesdays the theme is to use any winged creature on your project.
I'm also going to enter the clean and simple themed challenge over at Addicted to Stamps & More.
Materials used: Hammer card base: Darkroom Door stamps; gold ink and embossing powder; Distress inks; vellum; gold paper; Memory Box Butterfly Delights die; sentiment sticker and bling from stash.
Thanks for visiting :)
