Embossed roses, inka gold and wax.

Hi everyone, I had fun with this new embossing folder the other night!

I had a background in my bits box that looks like I'd smooshed it in some metallic spray.
Thought it would be ok to waste while I experimented with this 3d folder if it didn't work out. Well, I like it and now need to recreate it lol! I love the vintagey feel.

Here's a closer look.

 Tim Holtz did a live facebook video and towards the end he created a stunning card by colouring the raised parts of the rose with inks. I loved the look of his flower and thought I'd try something else. 
I coloured the flowers with inka gold in rose quartz and magenta. The leaves are done in antique brilliance wax in emerald green.

EDITED TO ADD: Here is the link to Tim's video, this section was right at the end.

I'm linking up to some challenges:

Double D Challenge with a showers or flowers theme and this gorgeous moodboard.

Mix it up Challenge where I'm taking the anything goes option.

Oh my, this is stunning. I hope I can find that video by Tim. I love your embossing folder and the colors are simply lovely. My Inka Gold has all dried up but I'll try to revive it now!

This looks fantastic Cathy and you have managed to capture the shine, but I'm sure it looks even more stunning in real life. I only have a couple of metallic waxes, but can see the coloured one look spectacular. x

WOW, Cathy !!!
This card is stunning. I love the satin-pearl shine of your pressed flowers. I love your card. I don't know this technique, do you have a link to Tim Holtz's movie? Is stamping covered with a sponge or brush? WOW! What an amazing inspiration ...
I hope you're safe, Cathy. be careful!

Wow Cathy this is sensational! Love the result you got with the waxes on that beautiful 3d folder. Love my waxes and can you still smell your card after using the Art Alchemy one?

Cathy, thank you very much for the direct link to Tim Holtz's movie. I was looking for him on FB group, but I couldn't find him. Thanks to your kindness, I will be able to learn this technique. Your card is really breathtaking, so I'm very curious how you made it. Thank you again and warm regards,
