Jewel-toned Tangles

 Happy Saturday, crafty friends.
One more water-colored entry to Neat & Tangled's current challenge:

I used the same Tiny Triangles stamp, this time heat-embossed in silver. I washed three jewel-tone inks over top (Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves.  Then I coloured in the outlined triangles with more of those colours, mixing them where the original wash overlapped.
 It gives almost a stained-glass look--love it! 
The sentiment is from a newer Lil'Inker Designs stamp set, "Girl's Best Friend." It was heat-embossed in the same silver, onto vellum to allow some of the colour beneath to show through.

The silver cord finishes the card, along with matting in Rich Razzleberry.
So, two different water-colour looks with one stamp.

Enjoy your day,
