Today's challenge is brought to us by our lovely Diva Jeanne! She wants us to use gold somewhere on our card/project. That's easy enough! I used lots of gold: gold brads, gold twine, gold polka dot paper and gold metallic paper. Why not join in the challenge?! You could get lucky and win some blog candy. Check out Jeanne's card on the High Hopes Blog to see which stamps are up for grabs this week. Make sure you post a link to your project on the comment section of the HH blog to get your name entered into the draw!
I stamped Leaping Juliette and the birthday cake in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto 140 lb cold press water color paper by Canson and water colored the images with Twinkling H20's.
I made my bg papers myself! The gold polka dot paper was some tissue paper that I saved. I crinkled it up and placed it overtop freezer paper and ironed it on. The freezer paper has a plastic coating that melts when you iron it so the paper will stick to it.
The purple background page is water color paper that I blotched with several shades of rose and blue to make purple. Then I sprinkled it with salt and splattered it with more purple. It was a fun mess to make!
The gold peeking out on the right side is actually gold wrapping paper that I crinkled and glued onto a piece of scrap cardstock with a glue stick. All home made stuff today!
This is a birthday card for my grown daughter who loves everything purple. In fact, when asked what she wanted for her birthday all she said was "anything purple". Ok so you're getting a card. Just kidding!! ha ha
Thanks for visiting my blog today! You have a blessed day!
