Beautiful Day For A Golden Rose

This card is gloriously rich in gold!
This card makes me so happy that it was hard to give it away!  It uses another of the watercolour backgrounds with Golden Glitz that I made recently.  This one used Blushing Bride cardstock.

Once the background was very dry, I gave it a wipe with my Embossing Buddy and then gold heat embossed the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set.

I painted the flower with Real Red, Garden Green and Blackberry Bliss inks and then added highlights with Golden Glitz metallic ink.  I squeezed some of the gold ink onto a block so that I could paint it onto the edges of the petals quite thickly and then softly blend it back towards the inner part of the petal.

I added a shadow under the flower with Garden Green ink.

Then I decided that the background was just a little too plain, so I stamped on some foliage from the Botanical Bliss stamp set with Golden Glitz metallic ink.

The greeting is also from the Botanical Bliss stamp set and I gold heat embossed it onto Blackberry Bliss card before cutting it out with one of the dies in the Beautiful Boughs die set.  I sponged some more of the Golden Glitz metallic ink around the edge before attaching it to the card front.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
