you know that friday, being jingle belles day, is my favorite day of the week. and fridays on which we have a lovely guest star are obviously my favorite fridays. this week that star happens to be miss leslie--one of my very lovely blogging friends; so we're in GOLDEN TIME, as far as i'm concerned!
actually, we're in golden time as far as EVERYONE is concerned because leslie's prompt is called MIDAS TOUCH and she is challenging us to use silver and/or gold with white and/or cream.
well shoot, there's nothing hard about THAT, i use metallics all the time! what's that you say, leslie? you mean we're using ONLY silver and/or gold with white and/or cream, and NO OTHER COLORS?! not even black??!?!?! ah. ok, yeah. that's a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit trickier!!! :)
but still really, realllllllllllly fun!
(patterned paper: pink paislee, chatterbox, paper co, anna griffin; transparency: creative imaginations; silver metallic chipboard letters: mambi; silver flower & pearls: michaels; ribbon: may arts; reindeer die & fabric rose: tim holtz; tree die: sizzix; brad: my mind's eye; tiny silver stickers: paperchase; gold metallic ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, low temp hot glue gun)
ok, so i doubt anyone's surprised that i used EVERY SINGLE OPTION available and worked in multiple shades and textures of each! i did it quite unselfishly, though, and in leslie's honor--because i know she's a crafty rebel who appreciates that sorta thing! (at least, that's my story and i'm stickin' to it!!!)
so what are YOU going to do?! go nuts and throw together every shiny object in the tri-state area the way i did? or be completely refined and elegant--but still glittery as all get out--like miss stephanie? or strike a balance somewhere in between, like our lovely prompt setter leslie? whatever you do we cannot wait to see it, so link up over at jingle belles by next wednesday night! ♥♥♥
