Antique Embossed for Friday Mashup

This week at The Friday Mashup Tara is bringing us the challenge and I won't lie, this was a tough one for me. She wants use to create a project with an antique style, element or theme. She would also like us to try the Embossed Embossing technique, you can see the tutorial for that HERE.

When I think antique muted comes to mind, along with yellows and browns. It's hard though because antique can be defined in so many different ways and my brain just kind of shuts down when asked to create something in this style. I pulled out the Apothecary Art set though and sat down to try and figure something out!

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black on watercolor paper and then used aquapainters to color in the image. I used Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry with a light background wash of Crumb Cake. It was adhered to a panel of Very Vanilla that was embossed with the Fancy Fan TIEF and embossed with opalescent embossing powder. This gave the embossed sections a darker hue of yellow with some shine to it. It was hard to capture in the photos but in person it looks terrific! To finish it off I colored some pearls with the 'light' Crumb Cake Blendability marker.

Head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see how the rest of the DT interpreted the challenge and then play along with us!

Don't forget, one more week until our big 200th challenge celebration at The Friday Mashup!!
