Creativity Feeds The Soul

Hello everyone! I'm on the Brutus Monroe blog today with this jewel-y (don't think that's a word ;)) card here.


I recently bought a pack of Staedtler colored pencils on clearance from Hobby Lobby. I wanted to try it on black cardstock. So I gold embossed the background on black cardstock and colored the flowers with the blue pencils. I used the Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder for the embossing. If you haven't used them yet, you have to try them. They are so good and shiny! It was very difficult to capture it on photo! To see the complete details of my card, please visit my blog post on the Brutus Monroe blog here.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

I always enjoy seeing how different products are used and this is a wonderful example of the magic that can be created with various supplies.
