One Stamp, Two styles, Part One, plus a freebie.

Today I wanted to make an elegant birthday card, but I didn't have more than 20 minutes to make it.  One way to achieve a really pretty card - heat embossing, glitter plus a fancy cardstock to showcase your art.  Here is my card with Details to follow:

The real beauty of this card is not my artwork, it is the paper I stamped it on.

This paper loves ink, It allows it to move freely in the swirls - you never know exactly how it will come out!

Looks like beautiful vintage plasterwork with high intensity shimmer!

I heat embossed using a gold powder in my stash

For coloring, I used only 3 alcohol markers. Instead of using a blender pen, I use 91% rubbing alcohol and a brush!  No more stain transferring from one color to another!

Add a bit of ribbon, distress glitter and a sentiment and my card was done in 15 minutes!

and for you today:

Thanks for stopping by!
