I’m just a little bit infatuated with the Concord & 9th Turnabout stamps right now so I decided to use the Butterfly Love Bundle as I just received it and it’s STUNNING.
Usually I use a few colors to create these amazing backgrounds but today, I’m going to show you how I did a tone on tone with a Gold Highlight and broke a very basic stamping rule.
I’m using Gina K Blue Lagoon ink and card stock with Mirror Gold highlights and Gold Embossing powder from Nuvo for my project.
Did you see which rule I broke yet? I didn’t completely dry my stamping before I did the embossing step, but I did it on purpose, because I wanted the “distressed” look of the powder on my other images.
I have linked the video below for you, along with a FREE PDF File for today’s project, but first, please hop along and visit my amazing talented friends. Your next stop is Sweet Sue Plot and if you get lost along the way, here is a list of participants:
