Challenge 87

hello and happy Monday!

We have a new Inky Paws Challenge today! This challenge is to use gold and/or silver on project which should be super easy this time of year!

I went with some pretty gold in my foiled background and the thread under my tags (and I guess in the centers of my flowers! a triple threat!)

How amazing is this set of plaid stencils!?!? I absolutely love it!
I started off by using transfer gel to stencil the thin lines of the plaid on some dark green cardstock. When the gel had dried I sent it through the minc machine with some champagne Heidi Swapp foil. I used Distress Oxide ink to add the other plaid stencil on top of it (I buffed off the ink from the top of the gold with a swiffer cloth) I stamped the flowers on some Neenah solar white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and added a few extra layers on top of the center flower for some awesome dimension. I added a sentiment on a tag and some gold metallic thread under the tag to finish everything off!

You have two weeks to play along with the challenge and link up a card for a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store!

Have a great week!
(this is a huge week for us with Bree's first school concert and dance recital and I'm taking Emma caroling so follow along on instagram for all of the cuteness! and wish me luck!)
