FS591, 30Day Day 3 - Awesome

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Janja! I chose these cards as my inspiration:

I focused on Janja's:
-gold frame
-striped background
-pink flowers with green leaves

I changed:
-combined the frame and stripes into a stamped, embossed background
-stamps flowers
-added a sentiment

These flower images are part of our #30dayfriends exchange - they are stamped on Bristol with Versafine Clair ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I coloured them with my Zig Art & Graphic Twin Tip markers (colours are linked below).

For the background, I embossed Art Deco onto white cardstock with gold embossing powder. To make sure that my sentiment matched, I cut it out of white cardstock, adhered it with temporary adhesive to a piece of scrap paper and tapped Versamark onto it. I then sprinkled gold embossing powder over the whole thing and heated it. When it was cool, I removed it from the scrap paper and used liquid adhesive to adhere it to its shadow. Here's the left overs..... that gives me an idea!

What an elegant and colourful card - love it Ardyth - and I can see a card coming up with that negative sentiment in the gold on it....
