Metallic Color Challenge

i did this card for the Metallic Color Challenge for Card Makers Week over on the Moxie Fab blog.
i had a bit of trouble deciding what to do with pink and gold! then i saw the paper that i bought from SEI called Moonrise, and thought i could do the gold embossing and just change the colors. so this is what came out.
i soaked the paper with water, then added ink and let it spread where it wanted to. then i cut it out, whew! that took a while! but i like how it looks curled up on the edges.
i also used my plaid maker stamp from SU, and just did one strip of stripes.
i wanted it to be a clean & simple card. is it? i don't know, is embossing considered simple?


  1. i am really liking the minimalism lately. very nice card

  2. I like this a lot!! Definitely metallic and you are a fabulous cutter!

  3. This is such an eye catcher. Love the flower matted on that die.
