Ok… so there is no such thing as Rose Gold embossing powder, but rose gold is all the rage (just bought myself a new watch and it was rose gold).
Anyway… my challenge this week was to learn a new technique, so I picked embossing, in particular embossing on vellum and using embossing with our new Stampin Blends.
Here is the inspiration card on the right from my sister in law, and on the left embossing with clear embossing and blends (pool party). It’s pretty in person, shiny and very subtle.
Then I mixed clear and silver – but it turned out silver (right) and then I mixed silver with white and it was pretty – a light shimmery silver (left), then I colored with the Pool party blends.
Then silver powder with copper (and a bit of the white to lighten it) and wow.. Rose gold!
I also wanted to get better at stamping on vellum. Tips: use the lower heat setting and make sure not to scorch the vellum. You’ll see I did a few greetings in black embossing and some with a mixture of black and silver. So you have a favorite?
Blends to add color, a bit of twine just like the inspiration card. If I had more time, I’d have stamped, colored and cut out the flowers and then inserted vellum leaves under the flowers. But I have to go to work now!!
