A Quick Card For Me!

Anybody who knows me will tell you this is a quick card for me. The stamp is from Hero Arts Solid Flowers Flourish Set. It was inked with Brilliance Galaxy Gold , heat embossed, and then the petals were painted with Twinking H2O Mulberry. I am including a close up below so you can see what happens when you paint over Galaxy Gold with Twinks. Your ink pad needs to have sufficient ink and not be dry. When you heat it with a heat gun it will raise up and looks embossed. When you paint over it look what happens (Click on it to get an even larger look):

The ribbon is some I bought at Christmas at Michaels. The embossed images are from Cuttlebug Fancy Corners. The pearls in the center and on the embossed images are from Mark Richards Crystal Stickers. I get mine either from Hobby Lobby or online from A Cherry On Top. You get twice as many as from Hero Arts for the nearly the same price. The Small Butterfly is a Fiskars punch from Aspire Petallics Gold Ore text weight paper. It was highlighted with Rangers Stickles Orange Peel and a Marvy Black pen. The words, from Paper Salon, were stamped with Galaxy Gold and painted with H2O Mulberry.

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by "the blog" to look.

So the Brilliance puffs up without embossing powder?? Did you add twinks to the "for your" writing as well?
Sweet card :)

Shirley ~ What a beautiful technique...This card is just elegant! I cannot wait to try this on one of my cards...the flowers look like real dried flowers, which also makes this card unique!!

shirley, this is a very pretty card. it looks complicated, so it's nice to know that it's not to difficult. love how the flowers picked up the gold hue. they look like they are dried. very, very nice. I actually have galaxy gold, so I'll have to give this a try sometime.
