Black and Gold....Using Indigo Blu Giant Peony..

Morning Folks, Can't believe it's Saturday again, where are the weeks going?!! Hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you are up to!!

I'm here this morning with another creation. I fell in love with Indigo Blu's new Giant Peony stamp, I couldn't resist it and needed to have a play...it reminded me of a card I made a few years ago, using A4 gold metal sheet and decided to have another go.... here is the finished result...


I started off by using a plain black base card. I stamped and embossed the corners and middle section with Indigo Blu Dinkie Vintage Flourish, VersaMark and Stampendous clear deep impression embossing powder. 

I then stamped the Giant Peony onto gold metal sheet 4 times (4th a spare!!) with Archival Black ink and heat dried it. 

Once dry I cut out the 3 best in decoupage style. Then I embossed over all the stamped lines to add dimension.

I put together the peony layers, then layered gold metalic card on to black glossy card and positioned on to the base card, adding the gold peony to finish.
