More Monochrome Sketched Flowers

Today's card is very similar to one I made a month or so ago (here), and is what I had originally set out to do...but my plans were foiled by some rubbish-y gold embossing powder! It was a really old one (from way before I started blogging...and I've been doing that for over 11 years) that came with my first heat gun, and when I embossed the stamp ('Sketched Flowers' by Simon Says Stamp) it came out a dull brown colour...not attractive! On the previous card, I embossed the flowers and sentiment using white when the gold didn't work, but I went on a hunt to replace it, and picked up a 'Rich Metallic Gold' powder by WOW, and tried again.It's so much better and is everything that I wanted it to be...a lovely shiny gold...and not too yellow. I added a sentiment from the same stamp set, then coloured the flowers using watercolour pencils (but without water), then distressed the edges a little before adding the panel to my card blank.
