Purple and Silver Embossing

Welcome

I would like to welcome my newest follower, Princess Judy of Blog This. Do pop over and visit her - her work and wit are wonderful.

I am glad to report that the nerve release went smoothly and I am healing well, and glad to be back here. 
These next few posts will be of cards made before all this happened.

I love this card, and am very happy with how it turned out.


I started out using the S/B 3-D Embossing folder Mediterranean Medallion, inking it with Memento Plum ink before embossing some white card.  


I then took some Inka Gold Silver Paste and rubbed it over the 'vine' section of the embossed panel.


I then took another piece of purple card, embossed the sentiment in silver and cut it using a S/B Lacy Circle die, and mounted that over the circular cenete part of the embossed panel, and finished it with some silver liquid pearls.
The final detail was a bow of mauve ribbon, and then the feature panel was mounted onto a purple base.

I am linking this to:
(This card was made for a Mother's birthday)

Maxine that's so pretty! I really need to do more liquid embossing. I really don't use that technique at all and it's so so pretty. So clever to have used paste over the dry embossing too. Beautiful frame shape created with that folder. Good to hear your nerve release went well. Rest and heal well friend. Hugs, Wends x

Gerrina said...

That silver paste looks so good with the embossing! A very elegant and stylish card! Have a good week!

Irish Cherokee said...

This embossing folder is absolutely stunning Maxine. Anything resembling doilies will catch my eye. Love the lacey look. Excellent

I am glad the operation went well and you are healing up with no problems.

Love, Hugs and Blessings

Before I forget, your card is really stunning, Maxine! I'm glad PJ has found you; she is a hoot!! And, most importantly, I am so pleased to hear that the surgery to relieve that painful nerve in your elbow was a success! What a relief! I hope your healing is smooth and permanent!

I also wanted to thank you for the sweet card that arrived today! I love the neat whimsical offset design! No worries on when you use the die even if it's not until NBUS 2017, haha! I know how that goes!! Big hugs, Darnell
