There have been some fun color inspiration for card makers challenges going on over at the Moxie Fab blog, so I thought I would play along in the metallics one that uses these colors:
I used Lockhart Stamp Company's Queen of Hearts Crown, stamped onto Copic's X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers R81-Rose Pink, R83-Rose Mist, Y28-Lionet Gold. I die cut and embossed the crown with a Spellbinders Nested Hearts die and then rubbed gold metallic paste onto the embossed areas (it's actually the same color as the gold cardstock, but it's looking a little coppery in this photo!):
Rhinestones accent the crown. I backed the die cut heart with a heart doily and then mounted the hearts onto a square of gold metallic cardstock. The Lockhart "Queen of Hearts" sentiment was zig-zag stitched onto the gold cardstock. The pretty Echo Park Be Mine pink patterned paper was distressed and machine stitched to the 5.25" square card base. Some cream mini rose trim finishes off this valentine that will probably go to one of my sweet daughters!
