Metallic Secrets

Hello all!  There's a break in the quote stamp samples as instead I'm very happy to be sharing a project over at the PaperArtsy blog tonight as part of this fortnight's Metallics theme.  I've a trio of money envelopes (almost exactly ATC-size, but not quite) on display, with lots of gleaming White Gold Fresco and Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  And to counter all that shininess, I couldn't resist adding just a touch of rust.


I hope you'll be able to hop over to PaperArtsy to see what I've been up to.  And although it's true that this is a break in the quote stamp samples, I've still managed to involve one of my new word stamps from EAB03 Music and Silence - I just can't put them down!

Thanks for stopping by and hopping and I'll see you again soon.

If you don't mind hopping to see the full set, I'd love to share this with the Metallics theme also going on at Stamps and Stencils
And I'm just in time to let it Shimmer and Shine at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, again, if you're happy to hop to see the full creation
