Not sure why I always seem to leave making a card for Virginia's View till the last week, because I really do love to join in this challenge. Virginia has so many fabulously inspiring guests to encourage our creativeness and so many super cardmakers posting their creations, it's wonderful what new ideas/techniques you can gather into your stash of "I'm going to try that".
So here's my card for Challenge #13 - All Things Embossed.
I do remember how blown away I was when I first saw Gold Embossing...WOW, that won me and I've been at it now for many years - we used to use the heat from a toaster to melt the powder as heat guns weren't quite on the market here in Australia....the toasters had gold speckles on them.
I've made a simple card with pearl gold embossed swirls along one side and sponged over with pale peach chalk ink. Then a swirly stamped and embossed sentiment. No bling just the sparkle and shine from the embossing (which also makes it hard to photograph)
Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
ps - can't believe it's 12 months of challenges for Virginia's View, where did that time go, congrats Virginia and happy 1st blog birthday
