and a big special hello to my newest followers its great to have you along to share my crafty journey.
Today see's the start of a new challenge at That's Crafty Challenges and for the coming fortnight we want to see your projects that are
"Silver & Gold"
Now this one has taken me right out of my comfort zone but it's good to do something different for a change and I like a challenge!!!
I made the background using a square acrylic stamping block as a stamp using Aquatints
in gold and silver to make a chequered effect background. I then added the circles in both silver and gold acrylic paint through a stencil.
I then stamped the Paris postmarks stamp from Tim Holtz "Paris memoir" set with versamark ink and heat embossed in gold.
To the edges I heat embossed "aged Ivory" embossing enamal and whilst still hot added some "gilded mica", both products from Stampendous.
Some gold trims were machine stitched on with gold thread, I then added some metal flowers which came from an old broken bracelet.
Finally I added my image stamped and heat embossed in gold and lightly coloured with antique linen distress ink. I have used one of the stylish girls from Tim Holtz recently released "Runway"set
I finished by adding my sentiment from Tim Holtz "Small Talk" Stickers.
