Sharing with you a card I made for the latest ColourQ challenge.
I got excited seeing the colours especially the GOLD! Gold is so trendy at the moment. I have pinned about hundreds of picture on my Pinterest Board called GOLD (obviously, Hehehe!). So I had to play this challenge. I made not one but two cards for the challenge.
Here is my first card today.
I have diecut the Lock and Key dies from My Favorite Things for my arrangment. I wanted one golden key. I had a brushed golden cardstock from stampin’ Up! but it was dull. So I swiped the gold colourbox ink on white cardstock, heat dried it and die cut the golden key. Still, it was not the finish I wanted. I wanted something sparkly. I was expecting by gold glitter glue to arrive but there was no chance as it was already Friday afternoon. No postal services for the weekend. Just then my daughter walked in with couple of nail polish asked for help to put them on. In her hand was a chunky gold glitter top coat nail polish 🙂 Light bulb moment! I tried it on a spare piece of diecut and it looked awesome. Just what I wanted. I felt like a child given a candy lol! So I brushed my golden key with the top coat of the chunky gold glitter nail polish. Not once but three times.
Here is the closeup of the key.
How gorgeous and glittery is that key? Perfect for the sentiment from a stamp set from PTI. I mounted this panel on to a brushed golden panel which is mounted on the card front stamped with text background from MFT using Soft Granite Ink.
Love it when common household items come in handy when needed 🙂 Don’t you think so? Hope you like my card because I am proud of it.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend.
