Twisted Card Sketch #14 with the “GOLD” twist!


Well, yesterday marked another Twisted Card sketch over at www.twistedsketches.com ! This week’s twist was GOLD, any how or any way that inspires you.  This was a HUGE challenge for me! I really am not a fan of GOLD, I’m more of a silver person.  I really was shocked that I was able to find as much GOLD “stuff” in my stash as I did.  Here is my interpretation:

I am very happy with how this turned out, being that I really found it a challenge.  It is a lot more sparkly in real life.

Supplies I used here include: Basic Grey’s Cappella/Pagentry paper (front and back sides); Prima Butterfly; Bic’s Mark It permanent marker in “Tiki Hut Tan” which I used to turn my Zva Pearl Adhesive flourish from white to GOLD; Inkadinkado’s Bird stamp -stamped in Colorbox’s GOLD pigment ink; Best Occasions adhesive metal GOLD dots; Janlynn’s Gold metallic floss, K & Company’s “All Occasion” vellum sticker quotables and Colorbox Chalk Ink in several shades of brown to ink the edges. 

If you haven’t checked out this Sketch challenge site, they post a sketch for layouts every Wednesday, and a sketch for cards every Saturday.   The sketch for this particular card can be found here.

Here a few more up-close detailed photos:

    Oh Nancy, this is absolutely beautiful! I am not a fan of gold either, and I think you might have just changed my mind! By the way, Frankie loves the music playing on your website! : ) A song by Cas Haley called Show You…never heard of it, but very relaxing.
