Going for Gold

 Morning all.  I'm afraid that I'm a day late but better late than never. Over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge we are looking for Gold on your projects please.  This gave me the ideal opportunity to try a technique I'd seen recently on You Tube.  I don't have a foiling machine and, since I've moved onto the boat, I've got no room for one either.  I was always going to be interested in a 'Faux Foiling' technique and I've link the tutorial I used here.

I tried a couple of my dies for this and this one was the most successful. Unfortunately the photo doesn't really do it justice. I finished it off with some gems and then, because it needed something, I added the peel offs in the two corners.

Why don't you give it a try, or at least join in the challenge.

Thanks for reading.
