Rose Gold

Hello! The Imagine color of the month for September is Rose Gold, in honor of the new Rose Gold Delicata ink. I have always loved rose gold, way before it was trendy. My wedding rings are rose gold, and I have other rose gold jewelry as well as assorted rose gold colored accents in my home. For a woman that's not a huge fan of pink, I find rose gold warm, comforting and beautiful.

I started off by taping down my Pop Rectangles stencil to a piece of Mixed Media paper. Using a stencil brush, I swirled in the Rose Gold ink. I went a little heavy with ink, and since it's a brand new pad it is super juicy. Looking back, I probably should have brushed some of the excess ink off on a paper towel to keep the lines crisp, but I don't mind the feathering of the color. I used my heat tool to quickly dry the ink, and then I placed my sentiment on to the paper. Just the stamps themselves, no ink, just so that I could figure out where I wanted them to go. Then I picked up only the "you make my heart" with an acrylic block, and inked up those words with Dark Brown Shimmer. After stamping and heat setting them, I picked up the "smile" and inked it up with VersaMark ink, as I knew I wanted to emboss it. I embossed it with Gold powder and then decided to also ink and emboss the edges of this layer.

I cut my card base out of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" brown cardstock. I pressed (not rubbed) the Rose Gold Delicata ink into the edges to get a sponged, glimmery look. The Delicata inks really stand out beautifully on dark paper, which is one reason why I went with the brown cardstock. I glued my stenciled layer to my card base, but decided it needed a little something more. So, I grabbed my irRESISTables Pico Embellisher in Shimmer, and added a few dots around the sentiment. The Shimmer isn't glittery, but adds the right amount of shine and dimension that I was going for.

Look at all of that shimmer! I love working with the Delicata inks. They are so rich and beautiful. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
