The other day I spied my Stampendous Aged Aqua embossing powder, and I started playing around with it, hoping to end up with something passable. This is what came out:
I embossed two strips of card stock, one with the Stampendous Aged Aqua powder and one with plain gold powder, then trimmed them into banners. The top edge looked dumb, so I poked holes across the banners and sewed them with gold thread that made me remember why I don't like sewing with gold thread. At least it wasn't a lot of sewing.
For the sentiment, I stamped one of the birthday sayings from my Taylored Expressions Big Bold Birthday set in Versamark and embossed it with gold. I die-cut it into a circle, and also cut another circle the same size that I embossed with gold. I just offset the gold circle a bit for contrast.
The handsome sequins cover a mystery I-don't-even-know-what on the card front.
I added some gold & silver star washi tape down the sides before mounting the central panel on foam tape.
This card is very shiny, even though I can't seem to capture that easily with my crack photography skills. See:
So much gold, and so much shiny. I'm going to need to play with the Aged Aqua embossing powder some more to see what else I can make with it.
Thanks for stopping by!
