Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #19 - Silver and Gold

It's time for a new challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month our theme is "Silver and Gold." Just make a project using gold and/or silver.



Our sponsor once again this month is the very generous online craft retailer IndigoBlu. They have given us a FAB prize package to give our random winner. Trust me, this is the month you want to play!! IndigoBlu was also kind enough to send the members of our design team an amazing box of goodies to play with. I have used many of them on my project today.

 
I made a wintery card today.  I used a background stamp called Bare Forest. I stamped it with IndigoBlu FlitterGlu and then used IndigoBlu MegaFlakes in Winter Dawn which is a beautiful mix of silver and gold. Then I stamped the deer which is from a set called "Looks Like Rain Deer." I heat embossed the deer in a dark gold color


When you order the FlitterGlu Kit with Flake, you get everything you need to use the beautiful Megaflakes. Our random monthly winner will get the FlitterGlu kit and much more!
 I used my beautiful flakes on white cardstock and I felt they didn't show up enough. So, I added some different colors of blue Distress Inks to the white panel and it went beautifully over the gilded area - it didn't cover the flake at all. I think this blue Distress Ink background made the flake show up beautifully. I put it on a dark blue card stock - Not Quite Navy from Stampin' Up. I love how it turned out and it was so much fun using the gorgeous flakes.

I hope you will join us this month and I can't wait to see all the sparkly creations everyone makes.

  2. I use mega flakes a lot and really can't get them to look as beautiful as you have. I really must get practicing more x The flakes against the dark blue background are stunning and good to know that the distress inks over them didn't effect them x thanks for the inspiration x
