gold is gold & the new black


Hi all. We have a couple of chilly days, so with the
heating on and a cosy craft room here I sit.
Had a great play with my mixed media goodies.
Starting off with black cardstock, added gesso in some places.
I then added Cosmic Shimmer, rich gold, and spritzed with
water, adding more gold. Creating my own background.

My heart is a die cut. "Patting" with my versamark embossing stamp pad,
I  then  used gold WOW embossing powder & heat embossed the lot.
 Was happy with the way it turned out.

My little frame was smeared with inka gold and a few embossed
stamps around my page were also gold heat embossed.

White acrylic ink was 'splattered' onto my page and I was
also happy with how that turned out knowing it was a
gamble doing it.



Scrapbook Boutique has now opened their challenge and 
blog hop to both Australian and New Zealand residents.
How cool is that?

The blog hop is awesome and very inspiring.

Annie, that gold and black is stunning. You did an excellent job...wish I could just beam up to be with you to play. We are to get 2-4 inches of rain in the next 3 days so there are concerns of flooding so I think that I will be inside a lot too.
