Tuesday byhand Challenge - Gold

Well, I'm still on the Valentine's kick.... I set the Challenge for Gold this week without even thinking how difficult it was to scan artwork with gold on it. Sorry!!
Here is my contribution!

Ever felt this way?
This is made with left over Ecoline coloured paper (see three entries ago!), Bazzill Monochroms, brass (GOLD!) brads, a bandaid (took me ages to find one that small!!) and the lettering was done with a Mitchell #2 Roundhand Nib using Schmincke Gold Tro-Col Gouache rich gold.

Created byhand Challenge - Love quotes

This card was made using the background paper described in the previous post. The quote was stamped with Black Brilliance ink, the overlapping gold foiled heart was made by drawing the heart with the Sailor Glue Pen, then adding gold foil over the glue. Cardstock is Bazzill Monochroms!

Ecoline Resist for Valentine's Day Card

Here is a wee card I made for my friend. The hearts were made with regular crayon on white cardstock then I used a wet in wet technique for adding Ecoline Colours: 311 Vermillion, 545 Red Violet and Scarlet 334. The decorated hearts were mounted on white cardstock and then red cardstock.

Here is the back of the card - her name was done with a Staedlter Calligraph Duo, the Happy Valentines Day with a Gel Extreme white pen and the hearts with a Gel Extreme Gold pen.

Gee, I hope she doesn't see this till it arrives!!!
