For this week's Less Is More challenge, to make an Anniversary card, and for this week's Dynamic Duo, Black and Gold.
I was inspired by Shirley's card here. I love this Stampendous Glasgow Cheers stamp, in the style of Charles Rennie MackIntosh (look him up - he's a bit like a Scottish Frank Lloyd Wright, in my opinion). And I use it all the time, embossed in gold for weddings and anniversaries.
I didn't end up doing exactly what I had pictured when I saw Shirley's card, but I do think it's very understated and pretty. I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used the small tip of my Versamark marker to colour in the champagne, before embossing it in Enchanted Gold embossing powder - it's a very sparkly, pale gold powder - just perfect for mimicking champagne!
