Always and Forever

Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge.  I was inspired by Vicki's clean layout and elegant color scheme.  Since I used Waltzingmouse Stamps sets on my card, i also serves as my entry for the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics "anything goes" challenge.

Always and Forever card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps
I used a similar layout and images, but switched the stamping to the right side of the cardfront.  My doilies were stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  It's so pretty and super shimmery!  I topped the doilies with a vellum strip heat embossed with the "always and forever" sentiment from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sweethearts set.  After matting the panel on gold cardstock, I adhered it to a black card base.

Materials Used:
Large Doily and Sweethearts stamp sets (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Delicata Golden Glitz ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Basic Black cardstock, black embossing powder (Stampin' Up!); 24 Karat Gold cardstock (Clear and Simple Stamps); white vellum (The Paper Company)

  7. Not a speck of 'extra' ep - that's the trick when embossing on black, isn't it? Love the intricate designs and the drama of this! So glad you joined us at Muse this week,Lori!
