a touch of gold

Good Morning Everyone
here is day 2 sneaky peep of Nigel May’s
Crafting into Christmas Stamps
such a pretty stamp with lots of detail
i decided to get out my embossing plate my powders and heat gun 
  white and gold card always seem very elegant to me at Christmas
this image fit the bill perfectly
the image heat embossed a treat…. i lost no detail at all…
  it is a very fine detailed image as you can see and trust me i didn’t think it would heat emboss well ...

my embossing ink pad is so dirty and old im surprised it works at all lol
the stamps are a deeply etched rubber so i really should have not been so surprised how well it turned out lol
the sentiment is also from the stamp plate
  matted and layered onto gold mirri and white centrua pearl card
thank you for popping by today
hugs linda xxx
