STAMPlorations CAS Challenge: Gold

Hi!  Today starts a new CAS Challenge on the STAMPlorations Blog, and this month we are tempting you to use the color Gold.  I just love gold in my paper crafting!  It always seems to rich and elegant to me.  Today I've used gold to create a plaid background...

I started my stamping and embossing my tree from the retired Oh, Christmas Tree Stamp Set.  Next I stamped the sentiment with black Versafine Ink.  I chose this ink because I knew I wanted to watercolor with various Gold Watercolors.  I used a flat brush to paint strips horizontally across the front of my card.  Once these were dry I used the Plaid Maker ARTploration Stencil and went over the background vertically with Gold Delicata Ink.  I then adhered my panel to a strip of green cardstock and finally onto the cardbase.  Clear and Gold Sequins added the perfect finishing touch.

The shine in person is amazing!  Any who, I can not wait to see what you will make for this challenge!  Remember, all products are welcome, and if you see some new STAMPlorations goodies that you need for yourself remember to use the code: STAMPGIRLLISA to save 20% off of your total!

Happy Crafting!
