Royal Party Invitation (Invitatie la o petrecere regala)

This is my second attempt on this card. I used just one stamp to make the background. Making it was very tricky because the card stock is silver coated and my pigment ink took a long time to dry. I smudged my first card, then tried to make a second one and smudged that too. What you are looking at is the second card. It still isn't perfect but I'm not making another one with this card stock. :) I might try on regular white card stock though as I really like it's royal elegance.

Ceea ce se vede e a doua incercare de a stampila pe un carton argintiu cu suprafata lucioasa. Pe aceasta suprafata cerneala se usuca destul de greu si e usor sa o intinzi din greseala cu mana, ceea ce am facut atat cu prima cat si cu cea de-a doua felicitare. Oricum, am renuntat la a mai lucra pe acest tip de hartie, deci nu va exista si varianta 3. Voi incerca probabil sa repet acest model pe carton alb normal pentru ca imi place foarte mult eleganta sa regala.

Meda, this is beautiful, as always! You don't like the embossed look? Just curious :o)

Hi Manna, I do like the embossed look but:
1. I don't have a heat gun so I can't emboss directly on my card with the iron I use for this technique
2. I don't know how to emboss a multiple stamped image: I stamp each image and emboss it,or stamp them all and emboss after that?
I could really use some advice on this.

Ohhhh, it's a beauty, Meda! When I have large areas to emboss, I sometimes do a few images at one time, or when possible, I emboss the entire area at once. I keep my heat tool moving in a sort of 'circular' motion all the time, so as not to scorch or overheat any particular area. I love silver atop silver. It's so very elegant!
