Enhanced Gold Embossed You Are Awesome

Not long ago I did some tarnished gold cards using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink to distress or tarnish some embossed mirror cardstock panels.  I wondered what that technique would look like using a colored VersaFine Ink.  For this card I used Teal Blue and love the way it turned out.  Such an easy way to have a striking card.

The only real tip I would give for working with VersaMark Ink on a slick surface such as mirror cardstock, I used Grumbacher Matte Final Fixative to set the ink and insure that it would not rub off.
