Little black dress

Since I had that teal paper out from the color challenge, I decided to try another card with it. Teal is not a color I use very often and if I do, it is not normally this bright of a teal. I started with the dress stamp from Stampabilities and embossed it with  black embossing powder. I wanted to created some texture and some extra shine so as soon as I embossed with the black I sprinkled some glittery embossing powder on top of the black and then heated it again. In person, it has a cool effect that I couldn't quite capture in the photograph. The sentiment is a SU stamp that was stamped using CTMH Ocean ink. The papers and brads are from The Paper Studio. All in all a pretty simple card, but I like it. Have a great night!
