Big Gold Butterfly

Today's card features another current favourite stamp...'Big Butterfly' by Stampendous. I stamped it using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using 'Metallic Gold Rich' embossing powder from WOW...this was a recent purchase to replace some fairly ancient (at least 12 years old) Heat It Up powder, that was distinctly unimpressive when I tried it a few days was more dull brown than gold! I can't remember it being that bad - does embossing powder 'go off'?!?! I used Distress Inks to watercolour the butterfly (Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire & Tea Dye), then added some splatters of ink and a sentiment (from the 'Go To Words' set by Visible Image).

I am not sure if embossing powders have a shelf life but I hope not since I fairly have a my own collection of EP. Thank you for sharing your creation with us @ Incy Wincy Designs Add Something Metallic Challenge. Good luck!
