I have figured out one thing about my modus operandi: I need two challenges, more often than not, to get going on a project. I need one with structure and one with inspiration. Today, the structure comes from FS. Nice gallery, plenty of different styles: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...&ppuser=228365
I used three ovals instead of one, embossed the design (this was one stamp that I divided onto the ovals) and used a flourish like ef instead of the flourish at the bottom.
My inspiration came from this:https://abeautifulmess.com/2015/03/h...m-and-ink.html
I am intrigued by marbling, although have never tried the shaving cream. Marbling with alcohol inks is incredibly easy and so much fun and that's what I did to create the paper for the ovals. I thought the 'hi' in the inspiration piece was metallic gold so that's why I used gold ep. And I wanted a one word sentiment, hence the 'kind.' We're hearing a lot about that word these days. And no, I will never get tired of embossing powder.

I have that EF but can never figure out how to use it since I don't have much that will fit INTO the center oval> This worked perfectly well Letting just portions peek out of your beautifully embossed triple oval - nicely done on both challenges.

This looks fabulous! Oh! I had that photo saved as inspiration too! I ended up using something different so it's super fun to see someone used it for their inspiration! This is beautiful! Your gold embossing is so elegant! I love your marble ovals! Beautifully done!
