Everything Turns to Gold!

Time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!!! This week, the challenge turns gold for CFC165!

I actually used watercolour paper for the texture and more yellow-toned colour. I like the warmth it added with the gold instead of pure white.

I used the Truth Is set for the flowers and the sentiment is from MWAH. I used my Misti for stamp placement and to be able to stamp multiple times with my VersaMark Ink. I felt this was a good idea due to the texture on my watercolour paper.  I added fine gold embossing powder to both the flowers and sentiment.  I added a little Copic shading to the blooms using Y26 and Y28.  For those of you familiar with Copics and the Y28, it has an actual gold tone/shimmer (best way I can describe it). I used the more deep yellow Y26 to blend slightly. I like the way it turned out! I then die cut a gold glitter frame and offset the watercolour top panel for the glitter to show through slightly.  

I then die cut some hearts from the CAS-ual Friday's Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies and placed them with some sequins to finish off the card!
