Gilded Emboss

Hi and welcome to my blog. I love trying out new techniques and discovered this one recently. 

First I sponged on 2 colors of Oxide inks and then flicked water across the background with a water brush. Next I took a 3D embossing folder and inked up the raised areas with Versa Mark ink. I placed the inked card stock face down onto the raised part of the embossing folder and ran it through my machine. I then added gold embossing powder where it stuck to the inked area and heat set the powder. This gave a pretty gilded look! The butterfly was stamped on some shimmery inked card stock and fussy cut. 

I am entering this card into the Simon Says Emboss It challenge and Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenge #2206 - Anything Goes.

Stamp:  Butterfly Kisses - BoBunny
Embossing Folder:  Sizzix
Oxide Inks:  Mustard Seed and Kitsch Pink

Thanks so much  for stopping by. Have a great week!

Very pretty. The colour combination of yellow and pretty pink is so refreshing at this dull time of year. Nice embossing.
