Art Neko napkin art on a card

Today it is my turn to post something on the 
but as I cannot post too many pictures there,
so here more about the background of my card
with a paper napkin. This happens to be the 
technique of the month on the Art Neko stampgroup.

i found this napkin in my stash and liked to use it for 
a card. I am sure there will be more, for I have lots left over.

I cut a quarter from the napkin and peeled of
the top layer. The white piece you can throw out.

Next I glued the napkin on a white piece of paper.

When it was drie I took out an embossing
folder and ran it through my big shot.

Here is how it looked coming out of the 
embossing folder.

I colored the raised parts with fossilized amber
distress ink and a blending tool.

For the center I used 2 stamps.
First I used the fossilized amber distress ink again
to stamp the text image on the background.
Next i stamped the Birds on a Blossom Branch in
black and added sticky gemstones in the heart 
of the flower.

i finished of the card with a gold ribbon, no sentiment
yet, for this card can be used for any occasion.
I will add it when needed.

Thank you for looking and
have a creative day.

This is absolutely beautiful! I love the embossed napkin in the background and the amber sponging on both the napkin and the birds. Wonderful creation!!

The combination of the embossing with the design in the napkin is just perfect! Thanks for detailed photos, I always love to see the process.

What a wonderful card Hetty - I have never tried gluing a napkin onto card, just ironing it. To see it done like this and then embossed, is a wonderful variation, and the resulting card is stunning
