Fireworks Celebration with Gemma

Fireworks always look beautiful as embossed images on a dark background and they are perfect for celebration cards. For my card today, I used the theme of gold and silver to create an embossed stencil background.

I began with a piece of light purple cardstock, then blended on distress oxide ink in Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. I used my heat tool to dry the ink on the panel so it was ready for embossing.

Next, I inked over the panel with clear embossing ink and the Pretty Pink Posh Fireworks stencil. I first sprinkled some of the Metallic Silver embossing powder in areas of the embossing ink. I removed the excess, then covered the rest of the embossing ink with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder before heat setting. This gives a nice mix of gold and silver fireworks, although I'd probably add a little more silver next time so it was more of a contrast.

I adhered the panel to my card base, then added the Pretty Pink Posh Celebrate Shaker die cut on top. I layered three of the die cuts together to get a stacked sentiment. 

To finish, I added the wine glasses image from the Pretty Pink Posh Happy New Year stamp set. 

Have a lovely day,
