Gilded Thanks


Hi

I'm sneaking this card in just before Color Throwdown closes!  I made it on the weekend, but didn't get time to post it until now.  I'm also linking to CASual Fridays Precious Metals Challenge, CAS(E) This Sketch and Happy Little Stampers Gilding challenge.



For my card, I started by watercoloring a tag using various green distress inks.  I then gold embossed the beautiful flower from Mon Ami before coloring it with my Zig markers.  The thanks was die-cut from gold foil paper and it was all layered onto a white card base.


Thanks for visiting.





Products used:

Stamps:  Mon Ami (CASual Fridays)
Ink:  Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint Distress Inks, Versamark
Cardstock:  Watercolor, white, Gold Foil
Dies:  Thanks (Savvy Dies), Mon Ami Fleur (CASual Fridays), Tag Sale #5 (PTI)
Accessories:  Gold EP, Wink of Stella, Baker's Twine

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at CAS-ual Fridays.
