welcome to copper week!

after some unintended time away for moving and illness, i'm back! to celebrate i have planned a whole week of inspiration! after rainbow week in march, i've been super excited to do it again. this week, copper!

to start i created another inspiration board:

sources:
-sparkle quote
-watercolor cake
-watercolor print
-kitchen
-lights
-copper corner cake
-invite
-planters
-hair

here is my first copper creation, inspired by the beautiful invite from minted:

i started by creating my "amazing" word. i did a loose watercolor wash with distress ink. when it was dry i used a versamark pad straight to the paper to apply ink to one half and then i embossed it with detail powder. i added a piece of copper foil on top of the embossed area and sent it through my laminator.

then i die cut the word amazing for my watercolor/foiled piece.
next i stamped & embossed the essentials by ellen mondo hydrangea twice on the top of a desert storm panel.
i placed another piece of copper foil over the stamped hydrangeas and sent that through my laminator.
on a piece of solar white, i also stamped, embossed & foiled a single hydrangea. then i used the coordinating die to cut it out and added a little pink with distress ink & a waterbrush.

i stamped and embossed "you are" and assembled my card.

thanks for stopping by, join me again tomorrow for more!
