PTI June Blog Hop {Touch Of Gold}

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

 
 
 
I'm back again, this time with a project for the PTI monthly blog hop.
This month's theme is A Touch of Gold.
I've added gold embossing to my project 3 ways.
The first way is simply stamping with versamark ink.  I stamped the third step of these roses with versamark and embossed.  The second way is with an embossing ink pen.  I followed the embossed groove in the circle die cut.  The 3rd way is using a strip of scor-tape.  I wanted a perfectly straight line.  I sprinkled the embossing powder onto the scor-tape and embossed.

 
Thanks for hopping by.
Don't forget to check out the new ColourQ colors and play along!

  30. Love the gold layer on the Sweet Life roses! Great minds think alike (somewhat) as I used gold on my Rosie Posie step 2 images).

    I love how you embossed around the edge of the circle (will need to look for a pen) and had totally forgotten the scor-tape embossing trick. Wonderful card!
