I've done this technique before: the colors in the image are created entirely from embossing powder. I have a kit of embossing powders that I use, from Stampendous; the colors in the kit are chosen with this type of image in mind. The method is: stamp the image on card stock, cover the entire image and background with Versamark ink, and carefully dust the embossing powder in various parts of the image. Emboss (I did it in the oven to avoid blowing powder around), then re-stamp the image with Stazon black on top of the embossing. The overall effect is that of enameled tile. The frame was die cut using Spellbinders deckled rectangles then embossed with the braid image and mustard colored embossing powder. The braid image was also used on the background panel (PTI's Terracotta Tile). A piece of gold satin ribbon was placed between the braids. Some thin braided ribbon was colored with Copics and adhered across the front of the card. The sentiment is from Sewing Box Hugs.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a nice day!
