Gold Embossed Watercolor

This is one of the cards I made this morning, I will show you the other one tomorrow...

The card measures 6" x 6", I had to make it big in order to fit this gorgeous flower by Penny Black.

The Iris was heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing powder on black cardstock and then colored with Pearlescent Watercolors by Yasutomo. Can you believe these watercolors cost under $4?! I just love-love-love the result!!

I wish you could see all the shimmer on the card, I just couldn't get a better photo... It looks so much better in real life..

The purple square layer was embossed with Cuttlebug and then I ran Gold ink pad over it and also inked the edges. I then added satin ribbon to the purple layer. The bow was tied from the separate piece of ribbon and then attached with the glue dot.

All supplies used on this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile.

This will be one of the cards for the new card class at Cranberry Hill, I didn't set the date for the class yet though..

Eddited to add.. This class has been scheduled. Please call the store at 408-736-9151 to sign up.

Gorgeous! I never think of using my gold and silver embossing powder unless I'm doing Christmas cards.

I love your coloring on this card. I will be in the area in about a week and am planning to stop by Cranberry Hill. We'll be passing through on our honeymoon and I told my honey we had to go :) Now I can finally get some Tilda stamps! And I'll have to add those watercolors to my list.
