In my exploration of challenge sites I came across "Lets get Shabby Challenge" blog and decided to put an entry into their latest challenge ( just getting it in!), which is themed on "Gold". For this challenge at: http://letsgetshabby.blogspot.com.au/ I decided to make a tag. This was cut from a pearlised glittery cardstock which was coloured with gold metallic alcohol ink. Even though this card only had a soft satin sheen to it, the alcohol ink took well without any bleeding on the underside.
On the background I've stamped a steam punk rose image from Chocolate Baroque's steampunk butterfly set. This was coloured using 3d Stamping Paint.
The flowers were quilled from different gold papers, including a soft metallic gold vellum.
Some layering with corrugated cardboard, Tim Holtz tissue paper, diecut cog and ribbons were also used. Around the edges I've added a random border of mica flakes.
Thank you for visiting. I really appreciate your encouraging comments.
