Merry

Welcome to another Merry Monday challenge.  This week, Sue is our challenge hostess and she has a color challenge for us - black, gold and silver.



I chose to use black and white as my main colors, with splatters of gold and silver made with Twinkling H2Os, which I've just re-discovered after not using them for many years.



I used a die cut sent to me by my Merry Monday Secret Santa last year and black-embossed it a couple of times to give it some dimension and shine.  For the white panel, I simply flicked Twinkling H2Os in gold and silver onto the panel using a paintbrush.  Once it dried, I adhered the sentiment and then finished the card with some rhinestones.  In this next photo, you can see the shimmer:


Thanks for visiting.  I hope you have time to join in the challenge.  Don't forget - Christmas isn't that far away :)

Products used:

Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories:  Black EP, Gold and Silver Twinkling H2Os, Basic Rhinestones

Cheers
Karren

Oh no. Twinkling H2Os. Can you explain, in 10 words or less, why I need Twinkling H2Os? I think we are going to have to break up because it seems like every time I visit here my shopping list gets a little bit longer. The card is fantastic, by the way. :)
