gold, pink & grey...

After watching Tim Holtz Facebook Live yesterday I pulled out my  embossing diffuser plates to make a card...didn’t work!
Though I will keep trying I didn’t want to waste the piece so I just covered it with die cut circles.
The base card is white card stock with grey card stock.
The embossed piece was rune through the BigShot with an embossing folder from Tim Holtz “Retro Cirque” and then colored with pastels from a huge art pastel set I have.
Using my Lifestyle Crafts nested circle dies I cut three circles, coloring the white circle with pastel, and stamped the sentiment from Sizzix Tim Holtz “Dog Talk” set.
These I glued to the card front.
Next I die cut the flower from Tim Holtz. “”Wildflower Stems #1” set using the grey card stock and glued it to the front of the card.


  1. What a fabulous result Arlene - like you I am a card miser, and hate wasting anything. Loving your use of the chalks to colour the embossing and the circles
    Stay safe

  2. So wonderful how it all turned out! Love it!
