Miss You

This is "Miss You".

A card I made to send a friend. It is the first time I think, that I have used dark colours such as these on a card. I am usually the bright colour person in the room!
I was looking at Kristina Werner's colour combinations, for which was one. It is Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves and Unchartered Mariner. I readily admit, I was nervous.

But once I did the second application of colour, I was liking it a lot. For the flower in my mini Misti I stamped using Delicata Ink in gold as I would be embossing the flower using gold embossing powder once coloured.
Using Copic markers and Prismacolor Pencils I coloured the flower mostly in deep pinks. The leaves are done using teal colours.

Once finished I put the flower back in my mini Misti and stamped using Versamark Embossing Ink, then heat embossed using Brutus Monroe Gilded ultra fine embossing powder. 
I then die cut the flower using the coordinating die. Clearly I did not want white going around the edges, so I had two choices, fussy cut or cover with gold pen. I decided on the latter, much easier than fussy cutting.

I sponged the background colour on the inside of the card, the card front and the panel attached to the card front. That panel has also been edged all around with the Delicata Gold ink.
To finish I attached the panel with foam tape. I then styled the flower and attach it with foam squares. I die cut the "you" from mirror cardstock x 3, glued them together and attached to the card. 

I then coloured a piece of cardstock with the Seedless Preserves and in my mini Misti I stamped the "Miss" with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with the gold embossing powder.

A few gems finished the look.
