Aged black frantage enamel and butterflies.

Hi everyone, I'm in the craftroom while hubby and sons are watching the federal election coverage on telly. It's early days yet as the polls only closed an hour and a half an hour ago!
I'll check it out in a couple of hours.

A work colleague asked me to make an 18th birthday card for her daughter who doesn't like frilly or pink!! I think this is feminine but not over the top, so hope she likes it!

I love how different colours come out in this embossing enamel. Black and gold in the numbers but lots of silver in the butterflies.

I diecut the butterflies and numbers and inked with versamark, sprinkled on the frantage embossing powder and heat embossed. I backed the butterflies with a vellum layer, although it's hard to see in the pic.

Here's a closer look.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Inkspirational where the theme is gold dipped.

Outside the Box where it's an embossing extravaganza.
The Memory Box products I used are flitter and drifting side butterflies and Parker number dies.Monthlythemebadge
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where the theme is stitches. I've used a stitched diecut.

So beautiful Cathy! Embossing gave those butterflies and the number 18 such great dimension and shine! Thank you so much for playing along with us at AAA Birthday! I hope to see you creations in our future galleries :)
