Distress effect gold embossing

Just because, Masculine Cards, My Favorite Things

I wanted to try something a little more edgy with this card. I had a beautiful piece if Aztec/geometric black card and my MFT Pretty Posies stamp set was also on my craft table so I decided to see if I could combine both. Starting with a light green card base I stamped an outline flower with hero arts black India ink all over. Then I stamped the centres with versamark, a sticky ink, poured over gold embossing powder and heat embossed. Because the outline flowers were still slightly tacky in places the embossing powder stuck only in some places, which was the plan, honest, and so you get a lovely two tone black and gold flower. I’m really chuffed with it but let me know what you think, please.

I then diecut my panel with a stitch rectangle and also made a stitch frame from my Aztec paper. I glued them together with double sided tape and added some Avery Elle twine. I then used my new Because You stamp and die set from My Favorite Things and die cut the because twice out of black cardstock with a stick it backing for ease of assemble. Stamped a just sentiment above my diecut, added sequins, glued the whole panel to a top folding A6 card base and voila!
