Vintage Gold Jars

Good morning! Okay, so I just got my first glitter Zing embossing powders, and couldn't wait to try them out. I wasn't actually planning on making a card - just grabbed my newest June Unity KOTM that had arrived the other day, and this cute image that LOVED, and stamped and embossed it on some scratch paper.! I am so in love with it! turned into a card for a couple challenges, because I couldn't stop looking at it and figured I might as well make something with it, right?

First, I used the color combo from the Unity Be Inspired Challenge - I substituted gold for the yellow, and then used softer versions of the same colors, but they are all there:

And then I have had this picture in my head all week from the current Runway Inspired Challenge, so I kind of went with that as well:

I took my stamped and embossed image, and colored it by dabbing some Mister Huey's mists on my nonstick mat and dipping a water brush in them to paint the color on. Love the soft effect that it gives! And it dries super fast too!

Added my sentiment from the Unity Set called Party All Day using PTI ink.

Matted it with some pretty MME paper...

...then added some scallop velvet trim from an October Afternoon wrap pack, and some natural jute twine. Finished off by attaching it to a cardbase made with Avery Elle Sea Glass cardstock, one of my current faves!

Hope you are having a great weekend!
