Good Wine

Hello & thanks for stopping by.
 Just a quick post today as I'm busy getting everything together for my shop's Card making workshop this evening.
 Tonight we will be using another Indigo Blu stamp, BFF.
 I'm loving using their products at the moment & am very excited as a new delivery arrived from them in the shop yesterday. I was creating my latest window display so didn't get a chance to peek inside the box so I can't wait to get in the shop this afternoon!.

My crafty friend Carole came up with her design for the workshop using double sided tape to apply the gilding flakes to. I loved this idea as it's quick & less messy than using the glue.  Here's my version.
The image was stamped with plum archival ink & heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The embossing powder actually has a tiny amount of glitter in it which was a happy accident as I wasn't concentrating & talking to my husband Nick & picked up the wrong pot!. Nevermind , I quite like the effect.
The background is stamped & heat embossed in the same colours using Indigo Blu's Itsy Bitsy Backgrounds & I've added a bit of aged mahogany DI here & there.

Hope you like it!
Bye for now
