Faux Metal with Judy jackson


There are times when I go to create a card that stamps, tools, and techniques just seem to say, "Hey, we will work well together!" That happend with this card. Does it ever happen when you are creating?
I read the technique, then as I looked through my embossing folders I immediately thought of this Fleur d'lis stamp from Club Scrap. After I had completed the faux metal embossed panel, and had adhered all of the parts together I still thought it needed something. It needed something that would give the card the glimmer and shine of metal. I grabbed my little mini mister with white Perfect Pearls home made glimmer spray. Voila! This was the perfect accent! It is masculine -- yet has a soft touch with the silver organdy ribbon.
Have a creative week!

Indeed I do go through wondering if something will go with another. Your combination is lovely.
