Black & Gold

I seem to be taking part in challenges unexpectedly this week, so here is another one I am taking part in. This the Sunday Stampers and the theme this week is Black and Gold.
I wanted to make an very quick ATC using a little butterfly I had covered in Duo glue, and then brushed on pearlescent powders to. I also wanted to use the gold crackle paint, which I had prepared earlier this week. (Sounds like Blue Peter!). So I stamped the words on the crackle, and then masked them and stamped over it with the Chintz Texture mat (one of my favourites. I had to stamp it twice as Archival ink didn't work, so used Stazon. Then I stuck the butterfly on. On reflection I probably should have made the crackle paint a little thicker, but I am always learning, that's what I love.
Sunday Stampers changes every week, so have a go, and say hi to Hels for me.
Tomorrow there is a new Theatre Production over at Objet D'Art, so hope to see you in the theatre at 7pm!
