Wings Of A Dove

Hello folks, it's a very chilly and frosty 1 degree here on the South coast this morning but the sun is shining so it's lovely and bright at least. The extra hour in bed was lovely too although it was still difficult to get out of the snuggly, warm covers.
I'm here today with my card which is part of the inspiration for the new giveaway at Studio 12 Creative Team which will be drawn at the end of November. This month the giveaway is really extra special too as it's some fabulous stash to the value of an amazing £50!

I made a shaped card blank with a Go Kreate XXL scalloped circle die and inked the edges with VersaMagic Magnolia Bud chalk ink. I added a panel of the gorgeous holly paper from the CD cut out with the same die set.
I printed out the beautiful dove on to very smooth white card and then sprinkled on detail gold embossing powder before the ink dried (you need to stand by the printer and add the powder immediately it comes out) and heated it to melt the powder.
I coloured the panel using various shades of VersaMagic inks after die cutting it to a circle. I made a mat for the panel by doodling text all around the edge with a brown fine pen then inking just the edge with Topaz and Split Pea VersaColor inks then sprinkled with crystal embossing powder to heat emboss for some sparkle.

All the details of how you can be in with a chance to win the fantastic November candy are over at the Creative Team blog so don't forget to pop over - there's some fabulous inspiration to feast your eyes on too.

Also, for those of you that hail from Europe and the rest of the world, Nikky has a Design Team call out over at Polka Doodles, so if you'd like to be part of our friendly team, pop over to the Challenge Blog for all the details. You have until 5 November to apply so don't be shy!

Have a great Sunday.

A beautiful card, Fliss. Love the colours. Dull and damp here today, but yesterday was glorious so I can't complain!

Great card! I would never think to even try embossing an image printed from the computer. Great idea and your image is beautiful. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
