Gold & Silver at That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone
It's time to start another challenge year over at That's Crafty Challenges and for our first challenge of 2017 we are making an opulent start as our theme for the next fortnight is
you must use both on your chosen project.
Here's my take on theme

Using a That's Crafty 8"x8" MDF panel I covered it with pieces of batik fabric which I glued using matt medium. I then stencilled through several That's Crafty Dinky stencils using Dina Wakley gold and silver acrylic paints. 
I then stamped the elephant. This is a 2 part stamp from Stampendous and includes a foam and a rubber stamp. I first stamped the solid foam stamp of the elephant using funky fushia Dylusions paint and then over the top stamped the detailed rubber stamp using versamark and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. 
I then did a little more stamping an embossing in pink using some asian style stamps from my stash.
My sentiment is one of Tim Holtz Chit Chat sayings.
Finally I added some gold trim, some beads and adhesive stones.

Why not start the year with the chance of winning a £20 online voucher to spend at That's Crafty. All you need to do is join in with us this fortnight, follow the theme, and then you could be our randomly drawn winner, 
You will find all the details HERE and also all the fabulous makes from my team mates giving you loads of inspiration.
