I love a bit of jewellery but tend to stick to what I like and what I like is silver. So, I've used gold! I'm a contrary Mary at times. I've had this card in my head - in a fashion - ever since I bought the Moroccan tile dies from Xcut. I just think they'd make an awesome screen background for an oriental type stamp. I have several but my absolute favourite set came from Lakeland way back when they used to do some bits of craft. It's still in really good condition and I love to go back to it when I'm in an oriental frame of mind.
Having backed my tiles onto gold glitter card, I heat embossed the stamp in gold embossing powder. I then fussy cut it and mounted it on foam pads. I did add the obligatory gem stones and that was that. I am so pleased with how this turned out. I really don't think it would have worked as well in silver.
Please pop over and join the rest of the Galz. I'd love to see your take on the theme.
Thanks for reading.
