A Gem of a Challenge 7

Yes, this is the first time I am entering into a challenge - Pink Gem Designs - A Gem of a Challenge 7

I just loved the Pink Gem Designs stamps when I first saw them in a card making magazine. I ordered one, found out about their challenges blog and thought I should give it a try. So this what I came up with.

First I stamped the image with a Memento ink pad, I coloured it with Promarkers and then cut it all around.

Although it's still too hot in Greece, I decided to use autumn colours (given how much I liked them on my previous card).

While preparing the layout, I realised that I didn't have any embellishments that fitted the colours of the card. Then I remembered a YouTube video that I had seen, about how you could change the colours of your brads. All I needed was an embossing ink, gold embossing powder and the heating tool... and voila! Pin It
