Gold on Black

Make The Cards Challenge #60

The Make the Cards Challenge is a technique challenge to use a black cardstock background. On my black cardstock I stamped with versamark ink the border wildflower background stamp from Hero Arts/PinkFresh Studios collaboration set “You Make a Difference”. After heat embossing the gold embossing powder, I used a white colored pencil to color in certain areas of my flowers and then used different colors of colored pencils to complete the background. After adding the sentiment from the same stamp set, I cut some frames from Taylored Expressions A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate in gold cardstock. The sentiment frame was popped up by adding two frames under the gold.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care, be safe and stay cool. Temperatures are heading higher again tomorrow in Pennsylvania.
