Floral Jewels


These cards are very similar, using the same colours, same techniques, same card stock, same stamps. but I've used different embossing folders for the background panels.  All the stamps and embossing folders are from Sheena Douglass's 'A Taste of India' collection, which is gorgeous!  I decided to use jewel colours with hints of gold for a rich, opulent look.   The base card is plain black.  The next  panel is a piece of Topaz coloured card that is embossed in a folder through a machine.  Silver gilding wax is lightly rubbed  over the raised pattern to give emphasis and sheen.  This panel is matted on to the base card.  Next a piece of lilac (Tourmaline)card is embossed as before, then three colours of gilding wax, purple, green, and blue, are applied as before. This panel is matted on to black card and layered on to the card.  On a piece of white card, the floral image from the 'Henna' set is stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  Several single flowers and leaves are stamped and embossed in the same way, then all the images are painted with H2O's in jewel colours to compliment the waxes and card stock.  The images are all cut out, and attached to the card with dimensional glue.  Gold liquid pearls are used to create texture in the flower centres, and accents on the central panel.
