Today I played with gold embossing powder, and some fall colors.
I felt my heart go pitter. patter. And then thumpity thump. thump. thump!
Except, I don't. I could use Pewter EP. But that Gold jar of EP just kept staring me in the face. All unopened; still in the wrapping.
So, I stamped the flower image from Regarding Dahlia in my Versamark ink, and then opened the Gold powder, generously sprinkling it over the images.
I snickered to myself and curled up my nose. Coming out of the jar made me dislike Gold even more. It was a horrible color. But fine, it was on my card already, I just as well heat it up.
And, yes. That did help - a TON! It had a nice gold sheen. But once I added the rich fall colors to the flower - WOWZA! I about fell off my chair.
So guess what? I didn't stop with this one card. I made 5 cards embossed with Gold.
You'll have to come back tomorrow to see them tho! I'm heading out to see John Michael Montgomery with a bus load of my gal friends! "She's an 8, she's a 9, she's a 10 I know. Got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes......"
