Sari Inspired

Stef, the Inspiration challenge hostess at Splitcoaststampers, gave us a wonderful website from which to be inspired this week called Sana Designer Wear. I was so drawn to the bold, rich colors in this beautiful dress.
Obviously, I used the turquoise/teal/gold colors for my design.

 I stamped the paisley image with Versamark onto Tempting Turquoise card stock and heat embossed the images with gold embossing powder.  I stamped the center flowers with Not Quite Navy ink and then gold embossed with the corresponding outline image.  I sponged Not Quite Navy ink on the outer edges to imitate the shading in the dress.

Supplies I Used:
Stamps:  Polkadots & Paisley by Stampin Up
Paper:  Tempting Turquoise, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Ink:  Not Quite Navy, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories:  gold embossing powder, Versamark, heat tool, gold brads and ribbon, sponge daubers

Life is so busy that I don't have time to catch up with everything - like the gallery from Saturday! But I'm glad this popped up today while I had time to check through Reader. It's simply gorgeous. I love those rich blues with the gold. Both the paisley base and the little flower panel are just lovely.
Happy, belated, birthday wishes. I'm pretty sure I remember you saying your card had arrived ;-), but it's been that sort of week.
