A Double Challenge!!

This week I decided to participate in the Colour INKspiration Challenge #58, BUT boy oh boy, I didn'r realise how much of a challenge it would be for me!!

The colours to use were: Crumb Cake, (yep), Whisper White, (no problem), Gold, (okee-dokee) and Blushing Bride...eeek!! PINK!! And not the singer, either!!

And then I realised that I didn't have any gold embossing powder, which would have worked for me... I lent it to a friend a few weeks ago... Aghghgh!!
No photo description available.

So I used Black Embossing Powder on the Gold Foil!! I haven't done that before, embossed onto Foil... Laying this on a peice of Crumb Cake that went through the Big Shot & Subtle Embossing Folder, gave it some more dimension also...

Gosh, I love a bit of fussy cutting! Although this took no time at all to cut out.

The detail of the Unicorn's mane is so gorgeous on the gold... *sigh* & I lifted all the layers up on Dimensionals.

I also saw that Just Add Ink's challenge this week was to use two of the three items: Foil, Ribbon OR Sequins... So that was an easy step up for my current card - Just add sequins!!

And suddenly I am happy with the card!!
Considering I didn't know what to do with the pink portion of the card AND the gold component, I think it came together ok - and Im okay with okay, lol!!

I guess, this is the whole reason for a challenge, right?

And these two certainly did that to me!!

To see how others interpreted these challenges, just head to the links above and leave a comment for them also :)

Until next time, happy Stampin'... Jo.
