Precious Metals with Winnie & Walter

Hi there!   I'm super late getting this post up with today being Halloween and all, but I wanted to share a card I created based on Taheerah's Gossip Column featuring Precious Metals over on the Winnie & Walter blog.   Our challenge was to use precious metals in a creative way, and I chose to break out my gilding flakes to create a fun multi-metal sentiment!

I stamped the Mini Scenery - Multifaceted stamp and heat embossed with clear powder.   I colored a few segments in using teal, raspberry, white and gold.   I stamped the sentiment, from The Big, The Bold & You, with Versamark and added sticky embossing powder.  I heat set the powder and pressed my gilding flakes into the powder.   Once it cooled, I brushed away the excess, and was left with the fun variegated sentiment!   I wanted the focal piece to be the star of the show, so I mounted it to some silver glitter paper and added it to a black card base.

Hope you've enjoyed my take on this challenge!    Have a wonderful evening!

  1. That sentiment is just fabulous!! The composition is perfect and the colours have so much depth together that I just keep staring and getting lost in it!! Thanks for spreading The Gossip on w&w's The Gossip Column!
