Gingersnap Creations Week 3

Hi All! It's time for another Gingersnap Creations Creation! The challenge this week was to use Metallics.. and I was having so much fun with embossing powder from last week I created this card...The stamp I used here is Palm Tree (004QCL) another one of my favorites.. of course I guess I haven't gotten one yet that I didn't like! I stamped the palm tree in blue on the blue cardstock base then added a layer of clear embossing powder to the whole thing to make it shine. I then cut a strip and began embossing layers of embossing powder on it blue, pink, and purple. Till it was thick and shiney like water. Then I inked my Palm Tree with versamark and stamped it over the top of the blue. Then I covered that with gold embossing powder! Matted it on Metallic purple and added a blue knotted fiber.

Head to the Gingersnap Creations blog HERE too the great work by their Design Team and Serendipity's Design Team!

Thanks for visiting!
