Another Faux enamel ornament

I just couldn't resist making another faux enamel ornament with my embossing powders.
For this card I mixed gold blue and white embossing powders with a little gilding flakes and before it set I embedded some gems.


I used a stencil and some distress inks for the background and Alison Bomber Christmas typed sayings for the background


I'm entering this for the following challenges






I hope you like the card, I'd love to hear from you.

  15. This faux enamel technique wows me every time I see it (and haven't had the courage to try it as yet). You've got some fabulous glimmers in this gorgeous ornament (and the gilding was a brilliant idea to add in with the EP as well as embedding the jewels). The background really shows off this wonderful ornament. Love that song, which is sung in Netflix "The Crown". Just a marvelous card, Christine. Love it. TFS & Hugs
