Seize the birthday ( option to use gold & silver )

Hi there!

Please click HERE or scroll down one post if you are looking for my inspiration at CAS(E) this sketch .


Time for a new challenge at Seize the birthday !

If you like our topping this week... gold & silver... go get out those metallic inks, pens, or paint! Otherwise... show us any newly created birthday card and play with the no topping option.



I used the Celebrate embossing folder from Couture creations by dividing it in 3 parts, and 'painted' it with my Pentel gold and silver paint markers.
The card stock used is actually Acrylic paper from DALER & ROWNEY.

If you love the texture as much as I do, click HERE for another card using the same ingredients ;)

Sentiment computer generated (font Little lord Fontleroy )
Butterfly file from Silhouette online store.

I hope to see your card in the gallery during this fortnight!

Thanks for looking!

OH wow!! That is just amazing!! Love the gold and silver with the embossing! Such a pretty and very elegant card!

SonjaK said...

What a wonderful card! I'm finding it very hard to combine silver and gold. I always feel they don't really match. So I'm really fascinated by how you managed to combine them so well and boldly on one card. Amazing!

Hoe treffend het jy nie hier die goud en siwer saam gebruik nie, vrou!!! Ek sou nooit self daaraan gedink het om die twee saam te gebruik nie!! Die tekstuur wat jy met die EF geskep het is lieflik en ek hou van die matt voorkoms wat die paint markers gegee het - 'n gladde afwerking sou net nie dieselfde trefkrag gehad het nie!!!! Die vellum strip met die sentiment is pragtig en natuurlik is die lieflike skoenlapper met sy pereltjies net die perfekte afronding!!! So mooi, vrou!!!!!
Groete
