Gold Embossed


This is the sketch for this week at Card Patterns and combining the color challenge at CR84FN.

Here is what I came up with for this week.  Using kraft as the base and I stamped the HA Woodgrain on the second layer of kraft and heat embossed it in gold powder.  The arrow shape piece is clear embossed with HA Antique Engraving and the dragonfly and bird are gold embossed.

The flower is handmade from white tissue paper which was stamped in yellow with HA Manuscript stamp and lightly distressed on the edges of the flower to give the creamy look.  I used to make flowers from tissue papers during my primary school days.

This card also enters into the following challenges :
