A Freshly Made Play Date for the Mr & Mrs...


Had fun playing with my gold embossing powder, inspired by the metallic colours at Play Date Cafe, and this gorgeous Freshly Made Sketch, and CAS-ual Fridays Text Me.  Don't know why but gold and silver just remind me of weddings :)  Using a cream base, I stamped the background script (from Prima I think?) in Versamark Watermark Dazzle, repeated three times to create the background panel then sprinkled with Metallic Gold powder and heat embossed.  Stamped and heat embossed my cute Kiwi-Impressionz Wedding Couple and The Alley Way Stamps Mr & Mrs sentiment too.  Shaped the stamped image panels to look like an archway, and pop-dotted the top layer of course!  Dry embossed the background with Cuttlebug Stylised Petals, with the join in the embossing hidden under the gorgeous Ribbon Carousel Antique Gold crushed silk ribbon.  I love the way the script just shows through the ribbon too!  Added a couple of silver hearts from my stash to complete.  Couldn't resist getting my fingers just a bit inky with Old Paper Distress Ink to highlight the edges.
