Lately I've been on a "BRIGHT" and "SHINNY" kick! For some reason the more vibrant the better. I'm usually more of a vintage shabby chic kind of girl. I've found that experimenting with these different colors has really kick started my creative juices.
I started with a little gold here and there, and before long my tag started to look like it was kissed by King Midas himself.
Today I used the Swirly Butterfly and the Leafy Branch dies from Die-Namites.
I used the Swirly Butterfly die on orange cardstock, then used a Versa ink pen to heat emboss "Queen's Gold" embossing powder from Ranger Ink. I love how it looks like he is molting. The filigree flower was originally antique gold, and I used the same embossing powder on it. The button finished off my focal center perfectly!
I think it is unexpected to see rich gold leaves. So I did the same embossing technique on the Leafy Branch cuts. Don't they look like 24k gold?
Thanks for stopping in today.
