GC39: Metallics

Today, Gingersnap Creations announced its latest Color Challenge! It's "metallic"! How fun!

I looked around at my supplies and discovered some lovely Shimmer Sheetz papers which I had been hoarding, so I decided to try out the Technique Junkies' technique, Aged Metal. It looked fun and I need to use my Cuttlebug more.

My first take on the challenge, I used a multi-colored Shimmerz sheet and then used a crayon resist and sponging on the image. I tried to match the colors I was sponging with the variations in the Shimmer Sheetz sheet.

Imagine Time
sundial from Sundial Cling set and sentiment (Serendipity Stamps)
Paper: blue/green Shimmerz Sheet
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Opulent Orchid, Brilliant Blue, YoYo Yellow and Gable Green (Stampin Up); Jet Black (StazOn)
Tools: oval cutter (Creative Memories); cuttlebug machine and embossing folder; white crayon
Embellishments: sun charm painted with Smooch

Hope your find time to imagine wonderous things today!

I will be showing my other sample for this challenge later in the week. If you like the crayon resist technique, check out the Gingersnap Creations blog this Sunday.
