This week the lovely Katie is our hostess and she is challenging us to use a TOUCH OF GOLD this week!
For my card this week I grabbed some Easter stamps to try and get ahead on making those for my family and friends this year.
I started by using my Silhouette and cutting some Classic White Cardstock using the Easter Wishes Silhouette Cut File. Then I stamped my egg image from the corresponding stamp set, Easter Wishes, using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.
Next I took the beautiful Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Die and cut a piece using white cardstock again. Then I using some Versamark ink and stamped the sweet gingham image from the Berry Sweet Frames stamp set onto my embossed cardstock and added some gold embossing powder.
Too add further gold touches to my card, not only did I emboss with gold powder but I also added some gold pearls, and I added some gold pen detail to edges of all of my patterned papers and also the edges of the bow on the egg too!
Then I coloured in my images using Copic Markers:
B91, BG10, BG53, R11, R12,
Y000, Y00, Y11, YG17, YG21 and YG23.
Here is a close up my gold embossing and coloured Easter egg image...
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday, #337, for my card design today....
Next week will be my final week with Flourishes so make sure you take a moment and not only take a moment to leave some love on my fellow design team blogs but make sure to play along with us too! Good luck everyone!
Come and join along with us this week for our "touch of gold" challenge! Be sure to visit the rest of the DT’s blogs and leave them a little blog love too….
