Fools Gold

This weeks challenge at Daring Cardmakers is hosted Sharon and its all about GOLD.  Sharon would like to see gold featured heavily on your creations.  There are bonus points for using rose gold with is Sharon's favourite.
I have gone with a Tim Holtz inspired card.  I have used a Tim Holtz embossing folder and used some core'dinations card and then lightly sanded over the top.
I then took my clear ink pad and gently wiped it over the surface and then added some gold embossing powder to create the back ground.
The cogs and gears are also from Tim Holtz and I have just ran them through my Big Sot using gold card.
The stop watch is a die cut from Sizzix and the clock face and sentiment are from Prima.
I then added a little peacock feather which was an old earring.

Don't forget to stop by the Design Team blogs for more lovely gold inspiration.

  3. I loooove this, Dawn! Great steampunk style - should really have thought of that myself... tss.
    Thanks for your kind comment on my card. Yes, I used sheet metal. I wanted to give it some more texture but the crackle paint wouldn't stick so I went for bling instead.
