DYSU? Challenge #101

Good Morning,
This week's challenge over at Do You Stack Up? has the theme of SILVER AND GOLD so we want to see all of your lovely blingy creations!!

our generous sponsors this week are.......

Bugaboo Stamps - Winner's choice of 7 images

Rhoda Design Studios - $15 Gift Certificate to spend on Cutting Files or Digis

Stampendous Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel and Frantage Aged Silver Embossing Enamel

This week I decided to make a Christmas tag using the Frantage Aged Gold and Silver embossing enamels from Stampendous. I stamped the Harlequin design with Versamark and embossed with the gold. The edges and parts of the centre of the tag were then smeared with the Versamark pad and I sprinkled gold and silver randomly over these areas. 

Close up of the embossing showing the gold and silver powders which also contain black to give the aged look - gorgeous.

Tag - stash
Harlequin stamp - IndigoBlu
Baubles and Word - cut on the Cricut using black and a gold/brown metallic card from stash
Glossy Accents - used on baubles
Ribbons and Bows - stash

I had real fun creating this tag - and made plenty of mess too!!!  I hope you will join us for this week's challenge and if you need some more inspiration, do take a look at the rest of the team's fab creations over on the challenge blog.

Thank you so much for looking
Denise xx
