Tying the knot

It's that wedding time of year and Ruth is asking us to celebrate those tying the knot with this week's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.

I played with a Celtic knot embossing folder and some copper engraving board (what I would have called scraper board as a kid). I read somewhere that you can use nail polish remover rather than sanding off the black coating.

I tried it and I have to admit it was too successful! Even though I was careful not to have to the pad too wet it still took off too much black in the recessed areas of the design. I ended up putting some black acrylic paint back over some areas and using a sanding block anyway!

I aslo added a bit of gold Rub n Buff in places so the knot has more than one metallic tone. I cut the design apart and reassembled bits of it so that I had some white space to work with. I think Kathy and I must be two halves of a whole - she gets jittery about white space, I get jittery about a lack of it!

So cool! I love metallics. I never think about doing an EF and cutting it out.
