Had a good day at school today - came home to do the Merry Monday Challenge - and I'm not quite sure what to think. It makes me think of "Traditional meets Grunge" somehow.
The challenge was to use Chocolate Chip, Green (Old Olive) Gold and White.
I tried embossing the Christmas Tree onto the gold striped velum….be careful because the heat does affect the gold - and the ink doesn't stick to the gold. However, because I put clear embossing powder onto the ink right away, the image showed up a bit.
Next I decided to add the wonderful gold washi tape - which lead to stamping some washi tape. I decided to use the Christmas tickets because they were less traditional. And finally, I threw on some pearls. I actually tried to emboss them with gold embossing powder, but it just peeled off. I like the clean look of the white pearls though - so……it is completely not my style - but I'm embracing it as a good try! (And in the process of posting this, and looking at the card more often, it's grown one me!)
Ya can't get down when the sun is shining until 8:30 at night and the snow is melting! WoooHooo!
Have a good one!
