Mixed Metallics

Hi Crafters,

Today's card features mixed metallics.  I've only recently been converted to combining gold, silver and copper but I love how this card turned out.  I've also used some new watercolour paints by Kuretake to fill in my main image.  You can pick these up from Amazon (non-affiliate link above) and they are spectacular!  Stampin' Up's Petal Palette stamp set offers so many crafting opportunities.

I chose to use the large floral image but I stamped twice, turning the stamp between impressions to create a mirror image effect.  

This card really shimmers in real life - almost like Wink of Stella but in paint form.  Check out my Instagram stories later today to see the magic!  I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock and stamped the floral image from the Petal Palette stamp set in Versamark, heat setting with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I used the Kuretake Starry Colours watercolour paints to fill the image in Red Gold, White Gold, Light Gold and Champagne Gold.  

My sentiment comes from the Banners For You stamp set, cut out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits dies.  I used Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder for the banner outline and Archival Basic Black for the greeting.  I raised the die cut on Stampin' Dimensionals attached behind the heat embossing.  This required military precision adhesion!  I added three groups of sequins in gold, silver and copper as my finishing touch. 

Do you have a favourite crafting product to pair with your STampin' Up! goodies?  I really love these paints and can't wait to try more. 

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
