October's Blue Passion from Couture Creations

Hi, Patti here sharing a project created using the Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder from the Fine Designs collection.  I love the intricate detail of this folder, it looks like morning glory vines to me! So I wanted to show as much of the actual folder as possible without covering it with lots of embellishments.
To do that, I wanted to make the actual embossed area a little more special, so I began by coloring in sections with Zig markers. I used blue, yellow and green in lighter hues. Then I used a blue ink pad and went over the entire area.
After that, I used embossing ink and sprinkled "WOW" Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder on it and heat embossed the entire area for a real shimmery look! To top it off, I added light blue grosgrain ribbon and a rub-on sentiment that matched perfectly! I think the color combo is striking!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my card!
