I don’t tend to use “gold” as I just don’t like the color very much. (Yes, even with the name Golda. Give me white gold or silver instead.) Sometimes I’ll use hints of it in things, but not a bunch. I was looking through my MFT paper stash and saw this pretty peach color paper, which I thought would work well with the kraft color. Then, I found a sheet of gold glimmer. Those went together so well, I just had to use them! I wanted to use the Adorable Elephant stamp set, so wound up putting some gray in there, though I was thinking I should have just done a gold elephant, or yellow. Didn’t think about it at the time. Here’s what I came up with:
I’m using this for this week’s Sketch Challenge at MFT. The gold embossing in the sentiment is slightly darker than the heart balloons, but really not as much as it looks like. It’s funny how flash can catch in certain parts of a card, but not others.
Used some Tangerine Twist ink from GKD to edge the pieces. I was afraid my sentiment piece would get lost without a bit of something to make it stand out.
Thanks for spending some time with me today!
