Black and Gold flourish

To anyone that is kind enough to drop by here, I say a very warm and welcome

Sadly I have been absent from the crafting scene for a few years (it drove me bonkers not being able to craft!) but I now have the time and a space to be creative again. Hurrah! Rather than start my old blog up again, I've decided to start a new blog.

This is my first post on this blog, so here goes: 

Here is a card that I have created for the Less is More week 258 challenge, where the theme is a one layer card with a flourish. 

It is a really simple card, but I like the way it turned out.

For this card, I made a corner background by embossing the Stempleglede 'Grunge Scroll' flourish in Wow embossing powder (Metallic Brass Sparkle).
This was overcoloured with Black Soot Distress ink marker and I wiped away the excess on the embossing with a paper towel.
The Waltzing Mouse 'Big Day Additions'  sentiment stamp was inked with Versafine Onyx Black.
Thank you for looking and I hope you will pass by again.
