red and gold skinny and a little blog candy

Yes, okay, you're right, I essentially made all projects
this last round in a red and gold theme, but here is my
"official" piece for the latest Gingersnap Color Challenge--
Red and Gold.

It's made with a serendipity style background,
Altered Pages images, ink, red and gold tassle,
red tissue, and some gold embossing around the
edge of the image. You know, I've had so much
fun with this last round of Asian themed challenges
at Gingersnap Creations, I kept a little pile of
goodies as I worked . . . so, if you'd like to
receive a little packet of supplies, just leave
a comment on this post. If you'd like another
go, let me know you're a follower, or go ahead
and follow now, if you like. No need to leave
multiple comments, just one "all inclusive" will
suffice. Oh, oh, oh, and for another chance,
leave a link in your comment to a red and gold
something YOU'VE made--I'd love to stop by and see!

It's not a huge packet, just enough goodies to make
a few atcs or skinnies; some German scrap, papers,
images, etc. Everyone everywhere is welcome, and
we'll close out comments and randomly draw a
goodie-getter late next Wednesday morning. I'll
probably get around to posting a picture later
today . . .

Here it is!

Some red tissue, shiny gold patterned tissue,
patterned paper cut to skinny size, red flocked
envie with embossed figures, some tiny Prima
"cherry blossoms," a few rub-ons, some super
fine gold glitter, collage images and text,
ephemera (translation: newpaper clippings and
a restaurant placemat!!), a red felty butterfly,
a couple of charms, some red and gold German
scrap, plus some red trim and cord.

Love your Asian themed skinny; your colors are beautiful! Thanks for the chance to enter your wonderful giveaway.

Gerri Herbst said...

Gorgeous piece of art! Very generous of you on the blog candy.I will be putting some up on Sunday for the first time to celebrate my 100th follower!

Joanna said...

I love your Red and Gold Asian themed work, it has a really vintage feel.

You generous little packet of Asian themed goodies would be WONDERFUL - I am altering a coaster for a blogging friend in an Asian style and having said I'd do it have now discovered I'm distinctly lacking in 'stuff' for it! This giveaway would be a lifesaver (so to speak).

You know I'm a happy follower!

I don't think I've got anything specifically red and gold to link to, I'll pop back later if I find something:0)

Gorgeous!! It looks like an ancient treasure. Count me as a follower. I need inspiration to use my creative side. It has been hiding for awhile.

broadwaygal said...

Love you asian inspired item. Of course I would love to have on hand some of your work but as you know my book in the round robin disappeared.

trisha too said...

Ooooh, Cathy of Cathy's Corner is the goodie getter--thank you everyone for your comments!


Max said...

This is a lovely piece - everything just 'fits'. I am stepping out of my 'just draw & paint' safe place & am trying to create multi-media pieces. Oh, to be as good as you are!!!!
