Hi everyone! Hope your enjoying your weekend.
Here is my card for today:
I stamped the bird using memento rich cocoa onto some cream cardstock. I then layered this onto another cream c/s which was stamped using a text stamp from Magenta.
The pearlized background was done as follows. I embossed my background using a hero arts background stamp with white embossing powder onto some canson water colour paper. I then used some Inka gold platinum and some tattered rose distress ink. I squished my distress pad onto my craft mat, added a bit of inka gold, a bit of water and mixed to make a wash. I then painted on the wash over my embossed background. It dries fairly quickly as well. Once dry I layered this onto a piece of cream c/s, then adhered to my card base. Added some lace, twine and a prima flower. I also added some small gold sequins to finish this off. The technique of the background came from Kim over at The Paper Pickle.
The inka gold comes in a variety of colours, but for a wash like I did, if you add ink to the platinum colour you can make it any colour you desire.
