Golden Shine

Hello.  Welcome.  It's the middle of the month and I have a little reminder for you for the Rubber Dance challenge.  I made an ATC featuring Merry Magpie and a few Textured Flowers. 

Since the Rubber Dance theme this month is Metal I decided to make my ATC base using a gold metal sheet.  

I glued a piece of the metal sheet onto a piece of chipboard and used a Sizzix ATC die to cut the shape.  Then I stamped around the edge with the small star cluster stamp from the Merry Magpie set and embossed with gold powder.  I smeared the edges of the ATC with Versamark ink and embossed again with gold powder.

I stamped the Magpie on book paper, embossed with black powder and fussy cut.  I added a little white gel pen to the eye and orange Promarker to the beak.  I stamped the small flower from the Textured Flower set directly onto the ATC and embossed with black powder, masked and stamped and embossed a few more.  Then I added some colour with lime green, purple and red Promarkers.  The Shiny! sentiment is from the Magpie set embossed in gold on black card.  

Thanks for dropping by.   The Rubber Dance challenge runs until the end of the month. You can use the colours and/or the theme.  Don't forget if you are shopping at Rubber Dance you can get free worldwide shipping with my code GTFreeShip when you spend over €15!  Hugz.
