You Make My Heart Sing

Hello everyone! I think I'm pretty obsessed with gold embossing, especially on vellum, for sometime now. Here's another card with gold embossing and watercoloring!


I stamped the Dogwood Flower stamp from STAMPlorations repeatedly and embossed it with Hero Art gold embossing powder. I colored it using watercolor. For the background I used Distress Mini Evergreen Bough. This is a color combination I've been wanting to try for a while. I've seen quite a few contests having this color combo in the past.


The stamping on the vellum is a Treble clef with the sentiment 'You make my heart sing'. It is from Unity Stamp Co. I embossed it with the same Hero Arts gold embossing powder.


I love the background! Flowers always make our heart sing, doesn't it? What is your thought on this?

Thanks for stopping by. Appreciate all your comments.

This is one very beautiful creation Berina, the gold embossing really draws the eye to the lovely blooms. I must remember to use my gold more often as it gives such a lovely finish.

Many thanks for sharing your lovely work with us at Allsorts and Penny Black and More challenges.
