Is gold the new black? Yes it is! I have a bottle of Hero Arts gold embossing powder which I normally use it only for Christmas cards but I have come to appreciate the beauty of it and decided to try it out on a CAS theme.
So today, I have a card to share with you based on CASology challenge (Blossom) and instead of the colorful flowers, I decided to make gold the main color theme.
Here it is,
I blend a circle background using Peel Paint Distress Ink.
I heat set it to make sure it is dry completely.
Next, I stamp the sentiment with Watermark and covered with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder so I can be sure of the position of the sentiment before stamping the small flowers.
I randomly stamp the small flowers using Watermark all over and cover it with the same Gold Embossing Powder.
I heat set it to melt the powder.
I hope you like this clean and simple design. I particularly like the sentiment coming out from the blended circle background, and the mix of rustic, distress green with glamorous gold.
Did you notice there is one little heart there? I like a little subtle hidden message and I try to incorporate that in my card.
I also want to highlight the quality of Hero Arts Embossing Powder. I have this bottle with me for a long time, probably lasted seven Christmases! It still embosses well which I think it must be the quality of the product. Usually embossing powder does lose it’s embossing capability after a few years but I am glad the basic gold is still working fine after so many years!
