City Crafter Challenge Blog - Gold Finger



I chose this week's challenge at City Crafter  and it is to use a gold medium - something that could stain your fingers gold - not just gold card.



For my DT card I die-cut a poinsettia and then rubbed it over with very pale gold gilding wax - I know it's hard to see on the photo. The flower middle  and the sentiment were coloured with a gold marker pen. I stamped the background words (a Darkroom Door stamp) in clear ink and then covered it in gold PearlX powder. I crimped some gold mirror card and added gold ribbbon and a bell.

Our Guest Designer this week is the talented Lenet Mos , so I hope you will come over to City Crafter and see what she and the rest of the DT have made and enter your own project . 

I'd like to enter:
