Stupendously Silver

Hello everyone,

After yesterday's amazing green and gold creation, I just had to try it with silver.

The background is Ranger alcohol inked glossy paper layered on a grey metallic of unknown origin and textured Stampin' Up Melon Mambo.  The image is Stampendous Butterfly Trio stamped in Blackberry Bliss and heat embossed with Close To My Heart Silver Pearl embossing powder.  The banners are die cut from more grey metallic with Sizzix Banner Framelits.  The sentiment is Close To My Heart Joyful Birthday stamped in Versafine Onyx Black on Recollections White and layered on more Melon Mambo and Recollections White.  The embellishments are Crafts Rhinestone Stickers.

This card is not quite as incredible as yesterday's green and gold beauty but it's still pretty wonderful.  I had hoped that the silver embossing of the dark Blackberry Bliss would be more pronounced as happens with the silver pearl embossing powder.  These wonderful butterflies do have a lovely pink/purple tone that is really wonderful.  I will definitely do some more experimenting with embossing on the alcohol inked paper.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
