The theme of VSN was pirates. I didn't make this card for VSN, but VSN did get me thinking about my much-loved, seldom-used Beware Pirates stamp set.
Sorry for the bad photo; I couldn't get the lighting right for you to see the embossing. The image is embossed with a mixture of silver and gold embossing powder! (I tried black and Irridescent Ice EP together too. Yuck!)
The image is stamped on black, matted on gold. The card base is Whisper White with a back mat of black. The DSP is long-retired and sprayed with gold Smooch Spritz.
