Go for Gold!

Happy Watercolor Card in Metallic Gold

 

This card is almost over the top metallic but I really wanted to see how well all of the gold elements would work together. What fun!

Along with the Happy Watercolor stamp set (wood 133188 $36.95, clear 133191 $26.95), this card also features gold inspired products from the new Occasions 2014 catalogue.

 

My theme for this card was obviously gold and white and I mixed gold Encore ink (the shadow image) with gold embossed images.

After stamping the shadow background image, I let it dry for a few minutes and then powdered it with the embossing buddy to be sure it was completely dry before stamping the flower on top and heat embossing the gold embossing powder.

    Not over the top at all Dar and a wonderful, gloriously golden card. Thanks for the tip about using the embossing buddy to help set the gold ink. Great idea! You’ve sold me on the ingredients for sure!
