A Winter Bouquet

I spent far too much time trying to perfect this card. I thought I'd try this technique I saw Kassi use, which is to clear emboss and then add a bit of foil detail. I wasn't really happy with the result and trew it in the bin (trash), but then I changed my mind and this is my card ...

I stamped the main image from Altenew 'Pen Sketched Flowers', clear embossed and then passed it through a laminator with pink gold Deco Foil.  I haven't done this with embossing powder before and as Kassi points out, this method of foiling DOES NOT create PERFECT foiled lines, but I found that the foiling is more raised like embossing. I coloured the image with Zig Markers to get a Sepia look. 
The leaves were embossed with a mixture of blue and green embossing powder, so you can see a difference in the colours of all the leaves. I then decided to add a bit more foliage from my 'un-finished stash'.  I used a We R Memories embossing folder for the white panel and passed it through vertically and horizontally.  The vase was coloured with Daniel Smith Watercolor paint to echo the look of the wooden bowls in the inspiration picture. 

Stamps:- Altenew 'Pen Sketched Flowers', 'Garden Silhouette', 'Beautiful Day' and 'Versatile Vases'.
Die: LawnFawn 'Celebrate'

I'm sharing at the following:-

I've used the blue & green powders in the embossed leaves

  2. This is so beautiful! The pink deco foil reminds me of my copper embossing powder I completely forgot I had. May need to get it out and use it!
