I didn't think I'd find time to make a card for this week due to an 8 day stretch at work, but when I first saw the inspirational photo over at the Play Date Cafe this week, I knew I wanted to use the colour copper and do something in a "antique/vintage" style.
The large medallion was stamped in Basic Black and then I brushed some copper pearl-ex over the image to give it a bit of glimmer. The text stamp was stamped over top and then I cut the whole image into four squares. It's hard to see in the photo, but the black background is embossed with a harlequin texture.
For the copper medallion in the center, I layered 4 or 5 layers of copper embossing powder on a black piece of cardstock. When the powder was still warm, I stamped the image in it and then punched it out with a circle punch. The brad in the center is one of the new antique decorative brads from Stampin' Up!
