I've missed the last two challenges at Less is More, and they were great challenges, too. Happily, I'm able to play along this week and the challenge is to use gold. Ooh, that's a tricky one for me. I lean first toward natural colors and second toward bright, happy colors. Rarely gold. I don't have any gold ink, but I do have some very old gold embossing powder, so I pulled it out to play along.
I stamped this beautiful Penny Black damask pattern background and embossed the entire thing with gold powder. Then I cut it down to two panels and mounted them on the card base. I embossed a sentiment on each and called it good. Two more Christmas cards checked off the list. These are very shiny!
I've recently returned from taking a troop of 10-year old Girl Scouts camping for three days. We lucked out and had incredible weather, which was a blessing as our summer so far has been wet and cold! The girls had a fabulous time exploring the woods and beaches, whittling sticks, sitting around the campfire, and exploring the historic gun batteries.
I'm looking forward to having time later this afternoon to do some blog-hopping. See you then!
