Persian Motifs

Hi - it's Ann here with another birthday card, this time using Altenew's Persian Motifs stamp set.



Something a little different for me, is the black card front panel - and I have to say I love the gold embossing on it!

I've used my older H2Os for the colouring, with very little water, as their colours are so vibrant.  I must try the Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers next time as they are also vibrant.

To finish I added gold enamel dots and a gold embossed sentiment from the Kaisercraft stamp set:  Oriental.

To make this card, cut card stock to the following dimensions:  
White base card 10.5cm x 28cm folded at 14 cm to form a top fold card.
Black panel is 10 x 13cm.

Before embossing, generously wipe black card with an embossing buddy, to remove static.  This is very important when embossing over black - those pesky specks will show up no matter how careful you are.
Stamp your chosen image with Versamark and sprinkle gold embossing powder on image.  I prefer to heat set before moving on to the next image as it is easier to see once embossed.  
Colour with your chosen medium, trim to size (I use a die cut rectangle to ensure my sides are straight!) and stamp the sentiment after swiping the embossing buddy over the black card again.
Attach the completed panel to the white base with foam dots or fun foam cut a little smaller than the panel.  Decorate with Nuvo Crystal drops in pale gold.

Thanks so much for visiting today - and I wish you happy crafting!
