What came to me was a vision of sumptuousness and hints of royalty, perhaps a mother's day card or a special female birthday. But never has the moonboot, crutches and no-driving been so annoying because it meant I could only rely, once again, on my stash. And I really wanted some gold foil paper to match my antique gold embossing powder! None the less, I'm still happy with the result. I used So Saffron card, So Saffron ink and the Baroque embossing folder to create the background paper and I think it does have the opulent look I was hoping for.
Elegant Eggplant, despite the oxymoronic name, is a rich, lush colour that conjours visions of kings and queens so suited my idea well. The main image, which is the adorable Beautifully Baroque stamp from Stampin' Up, looks superb embossed in gold. I did an alternative version with parts of the image coloured in elegant eggplant but decided it really looked better as it was. 'Queen for a Day,' also embossed in gold, finishes off the vision, along with three rhinestones.
