Cuttlebug Challenges - Sketch & 365 Cards Day 59 A certain sentiment


The Tim Holtz swirl background stamp is another of my new acquisitions. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder onto the black card which I then inked with gold, rubbing off the excess with a piece of paper towel. I complemented this by dry embossing plain black card with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder, inking only the edges.
The sentiment (the choice of 365 cards) is on Nesties of various kinds, using my Cuttlebug Typewriter alphabet, again using double-sided tape on the card before running through my 'bug.
Black and gold is quite dramatic isn't it!
