Gold Embossing for the Flower Challenge

Today, I finished one card and made two more. The "one-in-progress" was for The Flower Challenge. I've had almost a month to complete the challenge, but just couldn't get started. A week of visiting family (5 adults, a baby, and a dog) kept me away from crafting, but I made up for it today.  

The Flower Challenge this month requires embossing, either heat or dry.  I chose to emboss in gold and then watercolor the tall poppies from Hero Arts.  Two shades of watercolor pens provided the color. I finished the card by edging the flower piece in gold Krylon pen and adding the "smile" diecut, which I also colored in gold.  One addition that might not be obvious is gold spritz over the embossed piece.

Oh, this is pretty! I love it so much! The gold and pink is such a lovely combo and those poppies are divine. They look like a joy to color. The spritzing shows when I click for a close up and I can see it does add a nice touch. Sometimes you just can't get to stamping. I'm having one of those weeks, but I think I needed a break, anyway. Stamping all the cards I needed in a short period of time was pretty intense. said...

Wow this is such a pretty card!! I love the pink/gold and kraft combo, its so soft but also a modern design. You've coloured those flowers so beautifully and such a cool idea to go around the panel edge in gold too. I'm so glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge this month!
