ATC: Green and Gold

This week is the 200th ATC challenge at Wicked Wednesday and the theme is Green and Gold. 

At the risk of sounding 'full of myself', I have to say that I was quite pleased with how my ATC turned out.  I had been pondering which way to go with this colour challenge and was, if I'm honest, lacking inspiration, so I just got my stuff out and began to play. 

Here is the result:


Today was a beautiful sunny spring day and the gold really sparkled, but it's tricky trying to capture that, so here's another shot: 

Background: Flourish (Inkilicious) stamped in TH Vintage Photo and, when dry, texture paste was applied through Balzer 'Tiny Dots' stencil. Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive and Memento's Bamboo Leaves were blended with a sponge to colour the whole background. Using an embossing pen and Tinsel Gold powders the stems of the flourish were heat embossed, as were the edges of the card.

Image: The toadstools, from the Dylusions 'Doolally Doris' collection, were stamped and heat embossed in black onto white card, then cut out. They were inked with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. Then the spots on the mushrooms were heat embossed with Tinsel Gold. They were positioned onto the ATC on foam pads.  The Inkilicious fairy was stamped in Jet Black ink and iridescent glitter applied to her wings.

Words: Tim Holtz 'ChitChat' stickers.
