Gold

Is great to see at this time of year. When the weather is bleak and it is dark early, a bit of gold lifts the spirits! This is the theme over at MMM this week. I created this ATC by colouring the background with yellow and orange pens, then stamped a background image on top. On separate card I stamped the butterfly images in Versamark and added Stamp 'N' Bond to it, heated it up and lay it on gold foil. They were then cut out and applied to the background, finishing off with some doodles in gold pen. It was hard to photograph to show the gold, but hope you like it.

Sally, your butterflies are so beautiful. I would love to see them in their original form. Photos never do justice to beautiful craftwork. (I have had some success with choosing a naturally well-lit (daylight) place, no flash and a zoom which homes in on just the picture, excluding any unwanted background).
As the world's biggest messer, I am in awe of those who are such skilful handcrafters.
Wonderful take on the gold challenge. Scrumptious in fact.
