Gold and black Scandinavian print

Neat and tangled gold embossing

Hey everyone, hope you’re having a great day. After a busy day window cleaning I was thrilled to get an hour while Harvey napped to play with my neat and tangled Scandinavian print set again. Neat and Tangled have a challenge this month of embossing so I wanted to play along with that.


I don’t know about you but I tend to always go for a white card base almost without thought. I saw a fab card the other day by Kimberly Crawford which featured gold embossing on black cardstock so I had to have a go.

I love the effect!

I heat embossed images onto a stitched rectangle base, water coloured the centres with pearlescent gold, copper and silver paint from my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 COLOR SET” target=”_blank”>kuretake gansai tambi watercolours and added some ink splatters. While that dried I gold embossed the sentiment and used 3D black foam squares to adhere the sentiment and gold embroidery thread to the base. I stuck my panel down to the base and added a white insert to the inside of the card. That’s it.

Linking this to the Neat and Tangled Challenge #69

Please let me know what you think, I love to hear from you.
