Do you love gold at Christmas???? I sure do......or at ANY time! I had this scrap of ancient photo-realistic DCWV patterned paper with ornaments on it that I wanted to use for the ABC Christmas - O is for Ornament Challenge.......but I had to think of a way to dress it up. What better way than with some more gold ornaments??? :)
I ran the edges of my background panel over my Versamark ink pad and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used a gold scrap from the DCWV Mercury Glass stack for the die-cut ornaments.
My crafty pal Karen Ladd will recognize the shiny gold trim on the left. (Oh, my goodness....I still have a bunch of this left, Karen. It will outlast those weird 7-pointed snowflakes!!!) I glued that crinkly ribbon on with my usual glue: Beacon 3-in-1....forgetting that the acetone solvent of the glue dissolves that cellophane-like material!! EEEEK! A little die-cut tree concealed the distorted part where the glue made contact. Whew!
Inspired by the MFT 2019 Camp Create Day 5: Glitzy Glitter Challenge, I added a touch of glitter by using gold glitter glue for the ornament hangers.
Supplies used include:
Clearly Besotted -Tree and Tinsel dies (retired)
Spellbinders - Holiday Tags die set
Inkylicious - Seasons Greetings x4 stamp set
Gold embossing powder
Scraps of DCWV paper, foiled cardstock, and solid card
Gold ribbons from my stash
