City Crafter 339

Hello...

It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge at

This week Marina is hosting with the theme 
Gold Finger


Marina is asking that we use a gold medium on our projects eg. Ink, Paint, Gold leaf or Pen
Not just gold card

Did I need a reason to get out my paints again Lol!

I made 2 cards for this challenge


This one features ink blending and gold paint splatters both on the BG and the vellum


Sometime ago my sweet blog friend Sue Lelli sent me some butterflies and I painted them gold to add to my cards


My second card is done using Gansai Tambi watercolour paint, splatters of Mr Huey's calico and splatters of gold paint


I also used gold embossing powder for the sentiment



Our Guest Designer this week is Lenet Mos ... Winner of week 335 
Lenet and the team have some more projects to inspire you up on the City Crafter Blog - Hop on over and take a look.

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for your visit

Oooo these are so pretty Ros. I really like the soft colors on the first one paired with the vellum. The gold butterflies are sweet. Drop me a line and tell me where the sentiment on the second card comes from. Love it. Hugs!

What a wonderful job you've done with the vellum - which I find tricky to work with. Two lovely cards.
