Black & Gold

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing this black & gold card with you.

For the background I inked up the That Special Touch Leaves Mask with Perfect Medium. I dusted a piece of black card with my anti static bag and then placed it dusted side down onto the mask. I ran it through my Grand Caliber to emboss it. The Perfect Medium had transferred to the card when the debossed pattern was. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Seasonal Flora using Perfect Medium and I embossed it with the CS Bright Gold.

I cut a frame out of matt gold card using Spellbinders Labels Twelve. I also cut some leaves out of the matt gold card using the Spellbinders Foliage dies. I made a black flower using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One.

I assembled the card as shown and added some Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold.

Hope you like the card.

I'm sharing this card with Make It Monday #72.
