The other day I was looking through Pinterest and came across a color combo I would never have considered. Shame on me! The colors were copper and teal. I LOVE teal so I thought about it and decided to give this combo a try!
Our CTMH paper called Peacock is a teal and absolutely beautiful! It's my favorite of our 40 colors. I also have Copper Tinsel embossing powder so I was in business! I decided this sketch was perfect for what I had in mind and got busy.
I embossed the flowers image from Gnome Matter and a sentiment from Say It in Style. Then I got stuck on what to use as an embellishment on the banner. Everything else I had was gold or silver but no copper. Then the light bulb clicked on! I have used our Black and White Dots as is or colored with our markers but I had never embossed them before. Well today was the day!
First I moved the Dot to a scrap piece of cardstock and lightly set it there. Then I took our Broad Tip Embossing Pen and colored all over the Dot. After sprinkling on the Copper Tinsel Powder and tapping off the excess, I set the powder with my heat tool. It looked perfect and I'm so happy I gave it a try! After that I placed it on the banner and it looks SO pretty!
It was a bit tricky to photo the card and get both the cardstock color and the embossing to show properly. The first photo shows the cardstock color better and the second being a close-up shows the embossing better.
