Coral Flower

Welcome!  Today's card was made using the colors from 4 Crafty Chicks, the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and the gold theme at CAS-ual Fridays.

And here is my card:

I stamped the flower onto a panel of white with 3rd generation black ink and then colored it in using Copics.  Once the coloring was finished, I over-stamped with Versamark ink and gold-embossed.  (Thank goodness for the Misti!!)

I also gold embossed the sentiment onto a strip of Soft Navy cardstock and when I was looking for a banner die to die-cut it, I saw this die and thought it would give the card a modern look so went for it!

I die-cut the panel with a stitched-edge die and adhered it to a white card base.  The card was finished with some rainstones to mimic the sketch.

Thanks for visiting!

What a brilliant die for the sentiment Karren - it gives the stamp a whole different feel somehow. Love the rainstones too!
