So here is my quick Tutorial for you today using both Couture Creations Dies and embossing folders and Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.

Firstly I cut a 3 inch by 12 inch piece of cardstock, covered it completely with Foiltape, and then ran it through my embossing machine in the Irish Clubs embossing folder. Coated this entirely with a thin coat of white paint. Once it was dry I sanded the piece to bring back the silver metal on the raised areas. I added some Pink Glitzin Glamour Glue to the centre of every flower. 

I used the stunning Long Swirly Flourish from Imaginarium designs on my layout. I coated it in two layers of silver embossing powder to get a thick smooth finish. Then I added some embossing ink toward the bottom of the flourish and sprinkled on some red embossing powder and heat set. repeat this again with some blue embossing powder and heat set. 

 I also used the Happy Days Chipboard Title. This I also gave two coats of black embossing powder and then rubbed on some silver metallic rub to distress the finish.

I really like the idea of the silver foil being painted white and then sanded back, will need to remember that. The flourish looks amazing!
