Another quick post today.
I'm amazing myself lately with the frequency of my posts (and card creating!). It's the fact we've been experiencing a lot of rain lately here in the Greater Toronto area, so although my garden is loving the moisture (and me the free water!), it's not a great time to be outdoors weeding or planting. It is, however, a great time to make cards :-)
Another easy card - I used Penny Black's Bright Wishes, which was heat embossed in gold on the main panel. Gold Rhinestones were adhered for the flames, and the sentiment panel was gold embossed on black cardstock, which matches the black matting. To soften the card somewhat, I rubbed the edge of the white cardstock with my Krylon 18K Gold Leafing Pen.
I actually did this card in several different colours - using silver embossing powder as well, then using a rainbow of different colours of rhinestones for the "flames", then matted in a coordinating cardstock colour. The sentiment panel was heat embossed on vellum instead. This one - the black & gold - has a decidedly "masculine" feel to it, which is fine by me.
Thanks for stopping in.
