You Are A Blessing

I haven’t always been a fan of gold.  I always had preferred white metals.  In some ways I still prefer the white metals (like home décor in which I always choose stainless steel over brass), but I’ve learned to appreciate gold. 

For today’s card, I wanted to create something a little bolder than my normal items.  I wanted to achieve an elegant look as well, though.  I had just received this stamp set from The Ton and I was anxious to use it. 

I created this card and am linking it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.  I keep hoping that Simon Says Stamp will sell The Ton stamps – I request them every time I see them ask on social media.

To create this card, I used my My Favorite Things background stripe stamp and my MISTI.  I stamped it several times with Versafine Onyx Black to get a good, dark impression.  Then I copied it once on my laser printer so I could use my Minc machine to foil it.  I applied a frame cut with Simon Says Stamp dual sided stitching dies, and watercolored the peonies with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. The stamp is from WPlus9, handwritten thanks.
