Flourishes~Lace Heart


I won this beautiful set from Flourishes, it's called Lace Heart. I embossed the heart in SU!'s Antique Gold Glaze, which is retired now. That's a shame, because I love the look of it, I'm sure there's an equally nice gold out there somewhere just waiting for me to discover it. This is a chunky powder, so you get a less defined look. I also like the mellow color, it's not a bright gold, hence the "Antique" in the name, I assume. The designer paper here is from Prima Marketing's Poetry Collection. There's also a little touch of Bazzill, some crochet thread and a few bits of bling. The heart is up on foam mounting tape for a little dimension.

Does SU! still sell that heart? wow. What an emblazoned card, it could almost be a family crest. I love it!

Hi, Carla -- I can't get this stamped heart image out of my head. It's from Stamping Up? I want to know where to go find it.
