Just Add Ink #232

 
I have entered this card in the Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge #232.
 
Stamps used – Inspired By Stamping Flower of the Month : Water Lily & Fancy Sentiments

To the colour the image I have used Metallic Gelatos colourset. I first heat embossed with gold embossing powder and saturated the water colour cardstock with my aqua brush to make the blending and colouring process easier.
 
 
 
I gold heat embossed the right side and bottom of the card base by placing my versamark ink pad directly onto the cardstock.
 

 
The flower and leaf is from Prima. The gold twine is from Whimsy Farm Twine.

    Ooh I do love the gold edging you added Jo – adds a very lush touch. You did wonderful job of colouring with the gelatos – good tip about using the aquapainter to pre wet! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

    Wow, this is stunning! Fabulous colouring, and the touches of gold embossing are lovely (says me who really dislikes gold embossing!). Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us at Just Add Ink.
