Watercoloring Over Gold Embossing

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.
Today I have a beautiful card to share with you using two beautiful 
 Pretty Pink Posh stamps sets!
I absolutely love making floral cards and one of my favorite techniques
is watercoloring over gold embossing. I think it is such an elegant look!
Today I used the Pretty Petunias florals and the Everyday Greetings stamp sets
to make this beautiful garden inspired card.
Lately I've been crushing on this pink and orange combination.
I used 4 different color Distress Inks on this card:

I started off by stamping my flowers in Versamark Ink on to watercolor paper
It's hard to get a good impression on watercolor paper and the
MISTI helps with stamping over and over in the same spot!
I sprinkled WOW gold embossing powder over the Versamark and 
melted it with my heat gun.  The gold embossing makes it so easy to watercolor
and stay in the lines. After I watercolored the flowers and leaves I did a light wash
of Peacock Feathers all over the card around the flowers.
I took the Thank You sentiment from Everyday Greetings and stamped it in the
center of the floral panel in Versafine Black Onyx Ink.
I used the scalloped frame die from the My Favorite Things Blueprints 20
die set to cut out my floral panel and layered it on a gold foil background.
To finish off my card with some sparkle and shine I used some
Clear Sparkling Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here is a closeup of the card so you can see all the gold shimmer from
the embossing and the foil card stock.
I just love that gold shine!

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday 
challenge this week.  The theme is No Designer Paper.
Instead of designer paper, I made my own background with pretty flowers.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed
my card and will come back soon for more crafty card
