Gold embossed Trees

I'm trying out a new (for me) technique here, using stamps from Neat and Tangled.  I gold embossed the trees and sentiment onto white card, then covered them over with Distress Ink. Then I 'bleached' the middle tree with water and, when it was dry, covered it with Wink of Stella.

(While I've got you, I'd love to invite you over to my new crafts consumer blog, We Want Craft stuff UK. )

I don't use my inks nearly enough or in all possible ways, but I always seem to love cards I see made with inks. I should take time to use them more, it's easy to get stuck using similar techniques and favorite stash. Very inspirational and it's a great combo of classy and modern...
