I started with Pretty Peacock (SU!) cardstock and an image from WPlus9 called Beautiful Bouquets: Mums and came up with this...
You are basically heat embossing (a lined image works best) on your colored cardstock (medium to dark colored cardstock shows up best) and then ink blending around the edges. I used Altenew's Rose Gold embossing powder and embossed my image 3 times, and then started the ink blending with Pretty Peacock ink and then a tiny bit of black ink just around the very edges...you leave the center of your cardstock un-inked.
I did a little splattering next, starting with just plain water, but it didn't show up too well, so I moved on to white ink splattering. Next I sprayed my panel quite liberally with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Mist and let me tell you that this card really SPARKLES in real life! Lastly I added my sentiment (Gina K - Radiant Roses) that was also embossed in the Rose Gold and a few gold sequins. Easy peasy and done.
Definitely a FUN technique to try, and you can check it all out right HERE. Thanks ladies...your cards are ALL AWESOME!!
