Alchemy - GOLD!!! 2 Challenges

Back to where I began - this is what started me crafting / stamping. I saw Carol from Stamp Addicts, doing triple embossing and thought it was MAGIC... it really is alchemy. In making this 4x4, I have used gold and Moonglow two toned golds, which make rose and green gold colours. I stamped into the hot melted mixture with an Aspect of Design stamp, which Ali reminded me of, when she used it. I also used a flourish from a UMount plate, plus some text from AofD, and a few dots of gold Pearlidoodles. It is scrummy and golden, in real life, rich and textural (is that a new word??!!)

I am entering it into 2 challenges today, at My Time to Craft, Go for Gold and Created by Hand, Gold.

Wow!!! This must be fabulous IRL Frankie. I've done lots of triple embossing over the years, but don't remember ever doing anything this size. Gorgeous and luscious!

Don't you find it so refreshing to go back to where you started but then add something new to the original techniques that your learnt. Sometimes I am so busy looking forward that I forget that occasionally we need to re-visit techniques and look at them with fresh eyes - it helps to re-awaken the passion for crafting (should it ever diminish!).

Whew! Yup, wow, I'd say that was gold! Very cool - I haven't done this in ages - so you've got me all fired up to try it again. Thanks so much for taking the Created byhand gold Challenge!
