MAWTT - Precious Metals

Good morning all.  Can you believe its Thursday again? I sound like a broken record but where are the days going.  Anyway we have another challenge over at MAWTT this week.  The very talented Brenda has set the challenge which is:
"Precious Metals"

So we would like to see cards or projects which contain any silver, gold, platinum and these could be in the form of metal embellishments, wire, mirri board, metal sheets, altered tins, etc.

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Merly Impressions

They are a family run business started about 18 months ago by the wonderful Chrissy Tingey. They specialise in supplying scrapbooking and cardmaking materials from Kaisercraft to customers in the UK. Do go and check out the website as they have some FABULOUS stuff!

Chrissy is offering a wonderful prize, (I wish I could enter!)

Here is my project:

All the products are used are from Merly Impressions apart from the silver mirri paper which was in my stash.  I used the beyond the page - Long French Plaque which I painted wih silver eco green paint. I covered with paper from the new Magic Happens collection which is gorgeous, this particular DP had lots of swirls which I wanted to incorporate into the project. I made the flowers with silver mirri which I stamped onto and embossed with silver powder to give the flowers more depth.  The leaves I left plain.  I added some brads, glitter, pearls and the letters (which were also covered in the Magic Happens paper).

It hasn't really photographed very well but the colours are much better in real life!   The DT have made some amazing projects so please go and take a look here and I hope that you can join in the fun this week!  I have to say I got very messy with my embossing powders which I haven't done for some time so I enjoyed it!

I am entering into the following challenges this week:
Have a wonderful day.
