MCT Inspire Me Wednesday ~ starfish!

Today is Inspire Me Wednesday at My Creative Time!  This CAS card was inspired by the home decor item.  I love to get inspiration from unexpected things :)

Exclusive Italian marble tile with a Star Fish design in the center of our wine cork board.   Tumbled Italian Botticino Marble Tile (4

To create the "tile" I attached several squares of Bristol paper together, then "embossed" the starfish die.  I created a masks to ink the starfish and background.  After I completed the inking, I heat embossed with clear embossing powder over the whole tile several times.  When I thought there was enough layers I did one more and added a tiny bit of fine gold embossing powder before heat setting.

Adding the gold thread, sequins, and glossy accents completes my card.
