Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Gilded Alcohol Background!

Hey there! I'm back today with another alcohol ink blended background, but this time I added gilded leafing to the raised edges of the vellum! Gorgeous!


I cut the bloom from a piece of Gold Metallic paper, then added Gilded Gems for more sparkle. I also used Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon.


Inside I stamped a sentiment from Peaceful Moments. I inked the bloom first with Fresh Freesia and added Polished Pink with a Sponge Dauber before stamping on the lower corner and on the envelope.

After creating the background on the vellum using Stampin' Blends and 91% rubbing alcohol I embossed the layer with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing folder. I then lightly rubbed the raised embossed ridges with a Versamark ink pad, sprinkled with Heat & Stick Powder, and then gently heated with a Heat Tool. Immediately after heating I pressed the layer into my container of Gilded Leafing, rubbing and brushing away the excess with a medium-t0-soft brush.  You need to be careful to just barely touch the Versamark pad to the raised ridges of the layer or you will end up with a blotchy mess like this:
