Holiday Thinking Inking Week 4

Happy Thursday! Here comes my card for week 4 of the Holiday Thinking Inking Class and another entry to the Hero Arts October Challenge! I had some fun with acrylic paint and embossing powder:


I have some pearlescent acrylic paints in my stash, but never did them any justice. Now I tried stamping with them and love the result!! Here I used a blue one to stamp the brocade onto the dark background. For the sentiment and the edges I used gold embossing powder for a nice contrast. Hope you like it!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Cardstock: (dark grey) Papertrey Ink, (rain) Bazzill Basics
Stamps: (sentiment from Merry Christmas Sparkle Clear Set, Antique Brocade Cling) Hero Arts

Embossing Powder: (Gold) Ranger Industries

Ja, man sollte die Acrylfarben wirklich nicht verstauben lassen - der Stempelabdruck in Kombination mit Gold sieht "exklusiv" aus!
