I started out by die cutting a piece black card stock from SSS and the Right at Home stitched rectangle die. I put my black piece into my MISTI and prepped my black card stock piece with my anti static powder tool, and then inked up my stamp with VersaMark ink. I then coated the image with Hero Arts Brass Embossing Powder. This is one of my favorite metallic powders I own. I heat set the powder with my heat tool, and then just rubbed my hands to get rid of any residual powder left behind. I also heat embossed my sentiment at the same time.
I chose two colors from my Gansai Tambi water color palette, and got to work on my Rose Gold inspired flowers. I knew that the overall look was going to be metallic, but I wanted to have the look of the red/pink in it too to create the look of a rosy gold. It took a few layers to achieve the look I wanted, but in the end, it turned out the way I hoped. I also added some green to the leaves as well.
Once the piece was completely dry, I added back in some final accents to the flowers with my black enamel accents from Ranger, and also the white to the buds around the flowers. I really think this helped the overall look of the flowers.
All there was left to do was add this to a black card base, and the card is complete. I also have a video tutorial if you'd like to check it out!! All the supplies used are listed/linked below :) Have a great rest of your weekend!
This is simply STUNNING Kari, you did an amazing job on it. Such a gorgeous card! (I absolutely LOVE this stamp!)ReplyDelete
