Golden Glitz

I had some time to make a card last night!

Elizabeth Allan is one very talented lady and I learn a lot from her.  She always tells you the details and I just love that.  And, she has enabled me more than once!  This time, it was her use of the Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink from Tsukineko!  I am now in love with this ink!

Here is what I made:

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; designer paper (Cosmo Cricut - Mini Bloc)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics; Delicate Golden Glitz
Stamps: PTI (Year of Flowers: Mums)
Other: Spellbinders Floral Ovals die; Gems (TPC Studio)


And I adore that Nestability shape, so dainty.  Don't you love how that ink matches the paper perfectly!  I used the Golden Glitz to edge the white oval and also to stamp  the sentiment.

I loved reading all the comments on my post yesterday (that's the Giveaway post).  It seems like the whole world would love to go to Italy!!!  Do we have a lot of romantics here!  Awesome!  I think it's a fabulous choice for a country.  I have been to the very northern parts, many, many years ago, but after seeing "Under The Tuscan Sun" I really want to go and visit it from corner to corner!

Have a fabulous day!

Stunning card, Brenda! I love the colors and layering!! The added gem details is the perfect touch, too! And I also want to go to Italy (as we are only allowed to choose one country to visit...Italy is my close 2nd)!! And yes, that move" Under the Tuscan Sun" sealed the deal for me :)

Breathtaking Brenda!! I am so glad you enjoy the ink - it is addictive!

Stunning card, Brenda, love the colour combo and that die is so pretty. I've just got my Big shor a few months ago and am "collecting" dies now to have an assortment to work with - this one is now on the wish list.
Italy is a beautiful country, I've been there twice, both times to the northern parts, Verona and lakeside Diano Marina. I went by coach so saw alot of the surrounding areas as well.
