This month’s challenge was Touch of Gold! Gold embellishments and accents are huge in fashion, home decor and paper crafting so we were challenged to add some to our project.
Ever have an idea on your head and the resulting card doesn’t end up quite as impressive? This is that card for me. Especially since the embossing doesn’t show up as shiny and pretty as it does IRL. and neither does the fact that the ivory hexagons are raised up on foam dots. (the ones NOT under the sentiment anyway) But, I still think it looks pretty nice! I hope you like it too; kind of a quilt look. The ivory hexagons with gold on half of them were swiped in Versamark then heated with gold EP. I deliberately didn’t tap of all the excess EP then heated from the bottom for a messy look. I used the same technique on the edges of the cover plate die.
Thanks for visiting. If you are new to my blog, I hope you will come by again! Feel free to sign up as a follower or by email subscription and I’d be thrilled if you’d leave a comment. Have fun on the blog hop!
