A new month and another colour challenge at "Less is More". This time we have chosen GOLD. (I am quite partial to it myself... the real stuff that is!)
We are once more sponsored by WOW (Embossing powders), who is offering a caddy of 12 powders to our monthly winner. Wow what a fab prize. They are also offering a half price case with the purchase of 12 powders to anyone from our challenge.
This card incorporates a Sizzix border embossing folder design and a Martha Stewart punched border. The little charm was silver, but I inked it with Versamark and embossed it with some WOW gold embossing powder before adding the little flower shaped brad. The whole of the white panel is mounted on some gold card.
This is a commission for a friend. She wanted champagne glasses and lots of gold. I hope there's enough!
The image and punched flowers are from Stampin' Up, the embossing from Cuttlebug.
The sentiment is computer generated in Passions Conflict and Andalus fonts.
I thought I would share what I have found to be a useful combo of colours to make the gold shade for the sentiment (at least on my printer)
Red 170 Green 140 Blue 29.

Do join in the fun!
