Do You Stack Up? Challenge blog - #101 Gold & Silver

Super cool challenge challenge for you this week - just right for Christmas - any excuse for more bling ;-)

Rhoda Design Studio
* $15 gift certificate to spend on Cutting Files or Digis

Bugaboo Stamps
* Winner's Choice of 7 Images

* Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel and Frantage Aged Silver Embossing Enamel

I had a camera image from Rhoda Design studio - not had her stuff before - I thought the camers was a great image for an album cover.

I did stretch the brief a bit to include silver grey as a colour - and I paper pieced the image as well.  I printed the image 3 times onto the front of different papers - used one as the background and cut out and added the bits I fancied.  I have coloured several parts of the camera with silver metallic paint - but the scan is rubbish at showing silver - and I added a silver cord to what would be the loop hole in a real camera just for fun..  The paper I used to cover the book covers is so cool - it's all sort of ticket stubs so it matches perfectly.

This is just the front cover.  I wanted to make the middle pages of 'hairy manila  card stock (kraft to you USA gals) - when I went to the rack to get some - it has all sold ;-)  - well done kitten - well on top of that one then!  It will have to wait to be finished until I can order some more card.

I am really trying not to visit any more wholesalers until January and they have some big bargains to bag.  Only weakened twice so far this month (and one of them was not my fault)

  2. This is brilliant Pandy, I love the paper pieced camera, and the postcard stamping, a lovely mix of colours and papers.

  3. Love the papers you've used to create that fabulous camera, and the background is gorgeous! Thanks so much for the inspiration over at DYSU. And thanks for your visit - you beat me to it!
