Gold painted flowers

Morning all.
Two weeks of summer has flown by so it means the start of a new challenge over at Cards und More.
This time we would like to see your projects on the theme of -


It can be dry or heat embossing, its up to you!
Here is my interpretation using gold embossing powder and Altenew's 'Painted Flowers'.

I repeat stamped one of the blooms from the set and then heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I was originally going to add some colour to the blooms but liked the look of the white and gold. I cut the white panels with an Avery Elle stitched border die and on a small scrap strip, I embossed a gold strip using a Versamark pen and the same gold EP. The sentiment is from a magazine free stamp, also in gold EP. Simples.

For more inspiration please check out the rest of the girls over at the Cards und More challenge.
This week we are sponsored by our very own Elisa.

Why not join in we'd love to see your embossed projects.

I'd like to join in over at -
