Just A Hint Of Gold

Gold embossing is not usually for me but this card was crying out for just a teensy bit of glamour.

Another buy from Ally Pally are these three stamps from Indigo Blu, one called Ink Splat Butterfly and the other two, which I have been after for ages, are called Bubbles Background and Crackle Glaze.

Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Shaded Lilac are the DI colours used for the background of my card.

Stamped the butterfly with Versamark then added white embossing powder before stamping the Bubbles with Black Versafine and the Crackle Glaze with Picked Raspberry.  Made sure everything was dry then over stamped the white embossed butterfly again but this time with the black Versafine ink making sure the image was off centre just a fraction before adding clear embossing powder.  Lastly the lines were stamped with Versamark and gold embossing powder added.
