Challenge #202~~~Silver AND Gold


Looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post scroll down or click HERE
May 24th is our FOUR-YEAR ANNIVERSARY! (use both silver and gold) [Is anyone else singing "Make new friends, but kee-eep the o-old, One is silver and the other's gold" ??] This is the new challenge at Shopping Our Stash head over to the blog and check out what the other DT members have created. Now this should be an easy peasy challenge but I struggled, I embossed a tree not once but twice, didn’t like either. Then I thought oh background embossed in both silver and gold an other fail (to me) Then while rummaging in the Christmas stamp boxes (yes plural) I found the one I created with. Check it out!!

The stamp is an old one from Stampendous named Wiseman, I stamped two times with versamark and embossed one with gold pearl and the other in pewter (silver was mia)  I fussy cut the gold and elevated it. I added the gold circle to the silver star.

I have no idea when or where I got this package of embellishments but finally opened it.

Inside finished with a sentiment from Stampendous, I’ve used it so much the name is worn off. This is also years old but a favourite.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join the gang at Shopping Our Stash for the silver and gold challenge.

This is beautiful, Barbara! The wet embossing elevates your project and dimensioning one of the wise men takes it to another level. II am also in love with your star! Very nicely crafted
