Gold colouring

It’s colouring time! Kathy Racoosin has launched a new 30 day colouring challenge which is running for the whole of March. To find out more about it check out her Youtube  or her blog. This is her 7th colouring challenge; there is no pressure to colour every day, but you can if you want. I never manage all thirty days but I like to participate as often as possible.

The new release from Penny Black just happens to have a whole bunch of ‘colouring book’ style stamps; ‘Burst of Blooms’ is one of them. I chose to go dramatic with gold on black. The gold paints are from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors set which has five different golds and a pearly silver. I embossed the image in clear powder on black cardstock then painted with three different golds.

I also added some tiny gold dots around my image and used the same gold paint to hand letter a sentiment.
