We have lots of inspiration for you from our fabulous Design Team
Karen Mead is our talented Guest Designer this month.
I used the technique from this video tutorial for my card.
I stamped the leaf and heat embossed with gold powder for the main image.
Then I masked off 2 edges, inked with VersaMark and heat embossed those edges.
I repeated the process for the other 2 edges.
I found a piece of handmade paper from an ancient pad in my stash and cut
a piece to fit the card front.
Now what to do for splatters?
I put a drop of Encore Gold reinker in my palette, dropped a little water in
and stirred it until it blended good. Picked some up on my paint brush
and tapped to get some splatters on the background and the design piece.
Finally, I inked the edges of the card and dipped into
the embossing powder and heat set.
I didn't add a sentiment because I'm not sure what I'll use this card for.
Now it's your turn to bring on the gold.
I hope you'll join us at
(Please make sure your cards are CAS.)
I can't wait to see what you come up with.
Thanks for the visit.
