Hi there everybody… Katie here and do I have a challenge for you! Some of you may know I have quite a fondness for my gold leafing pen so I thought it might be fun to see what all of you would create if you were to incorporated gold into your card or project!
That’s it…just use gold somewhere on your project…it could be a pretty vintage button, gold leafing, gold paper…. whatever you choose, just use GOLD!
So, for my card this week I just had to use the beautiful Tulips for Friends set. I guess it is wishing on my part that I will actually see some of these soon!
I stamped my image using Memento’s Tuxedo Black ink on to Flourishes Classic White card stock and then colored it in with Copics. Then, I simply added several layers of die cut card stock and designer paper using Spellbinders Classic Squares and a Marianne Designs die set. I gold leafed two of the layers and sanded the edges to allow a little more white to peek through.
I was going to add a sentiment to it, but then decided at the last minute to leave it plain so I could use it for whatever occasion I needed a card. I did also sponge a little white craft ink around the edges to distress it a bit and that is it…no embellishments what so ever…well, except for the gold leafing! :)
So that is all for my card today. I hope you are inspired to get to work on your own “touch of gold” creation but before you get started, please take a look at what my amazingly talented teammates have made for your inspiration! While you are there, please leave them a little blog love too! :)
