Golden days

golden day

Although it is a little dreary and wet today we have been enjoying beautiful days of sunshine lately so a golden theme seemed appropriate.

The little panel started out as a bigger experimental panel onto which I brayered blue and green ink. I then coloured the iris stamp with markers spritzed it, then stamped. I added some script on the left, some flourishes around the edges and finally a sentiment. Once trimmed I had to decide where and on what sized card I would place the panel. I played around with a landscape orientation for quite a while but it just wasn’t working for me so I settled on popping up the panel on a portrait oriented card base instead. You will probably realize that adding a charm is a first for me but I really liked the gold accents in the ribbon, charm and cord. They helped highlight the summer feel of the panel.

Hope you are enjoying some sunshine too.

    Beautiful card! Like the colors and layers of ink/stamping. 🙂 I recently saw a SCS challenge hostess comment about you and recommend we check out your blog. She called you the Queen of Masking and testified that you were AMAZING at it. I agree. 🙂
