Oriental Dahlias

This week at Timeless Tuesday, the challenge is to incorporate A Touch Of Gold.  For this one, I chose my background papers from Papermania's Oriental Treasures paper pad as many of them have gold foil accents.   I layered the two papers onto black cardstock and then onto metallic gold cardstock.  Then I punched some black cardstock with Martha Stewart's lace doily trim punch and layered that onto metallic gold cardstock to cover the join in the background papers.  I stamped the sentiment from Flourishes Dahlias stamp set directly onto the background with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then stamped the large dahlia image onto blending card, coloured it with copics, cut it out with scissors and attached it with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were:  R32, R35, R37, R89, Y21, Y38, G40, G43, G46.
