Hi! This card was made for the VSN ... I'm the hostess for this challenge.
Ever since I was in elementary school, I've been watching the Olympics with my family. This year is the first year that Markie wanted to watch with us. As a matter of fact, he was chanting, "Go For the Gold!" at the television set this past weekend! I had to laugh, as my husband was snoring on the couch, and there was my little 10 year old, chanting for a Curling team. Who knew he would like to watch a game that had brushes and stones? He's usually more interested in chess!
So, in honor of Markie's Chant, I challenged participanted to GO FOR THE GOLD by using GOLD on cards!
These are sneak peek stamps from the Chickadee and Ferns set coming out in 12 days. I embossed the bottom panel with the same ferns, (in gold), that I used on the focal panel. The Chickadee was stamped in Adirondack Espresso and sponged in with Paris Lights and charcoal.
I'll have more details soon!
Finished card size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Total time to complete: 29 minutes
