MMCC #30

Here we are - December already! And time for a new theme at the Mixed Media Card Challenge. This month it's about another favorite - GOLD - with the optional element of "star".


I've got some funky gold goodness for you today.


This was basically an experiment. What do you get when you mix white glue with embossing powder? My card!

Dribbled the glue all over a panel of black CS. Sprinkled gold embossing powder over it. Poured the excess off. Let it set up for ten minutes and then heat embossed, being careful not to overheat it.

So what to do with it? I adhered a strip of washi down the edge of a cardbase. Did the same down a strip of vellum and then heat embossed a sentiment from Papertrey Shapes by Design onto it. Wrapped it around the back of the black panel, trimmed a curvy edge on the panel and then adhered it to the cardbase.

How's that for mixed media? Stamping and ink, plus texture, dimension and technique! I think it might make a nice anniversary card for a young-at-heart couple on their 50th! Why not create a mixed media card with GOLD and join us at the Mixed Media Card Challenge this month? Be sure to check out what the DT has created here.
