Gold Embossed Card

I tried something new on this card. I added a sprinkling of embossing powder to the ink I used (direct to paper) to accent the dry embossing.

Some of it stuck to the bit of ink that got on the debossed areas so I brushed it off with a soft brush. The circles that look really dark are just mirrored gold sequins. I promise they aren’t dark brown!

This card is for Cardabilities #80 (unfortunately, I am several week’s behind) and Joan’s Gardens.

Enjoy, Rebecca
