Silver & Gold

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #19  is Silver and Gold.  This had me inspired to work on a birthday card for my niece. 

 I was so happy with the end results I decided to crop it a bit and create my holiday blog banner with it!

 I started with a mix of splatters of silver and gold.  I then stamped some stars using the new Darkroom Door Stars Stamp Set.  I stamped the new set in silver and gold inks. (Tsukineko Glitz)

I fussy cut a bunch of the different stars in shapes and sizes to layer in the mix.

Then because I wanted even more glitz and glamour for my niece, I sprinkled liberally the Stampendous Gold Luxe Mix over the surface.  I also stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Darkroom Door - Simple Sayings in the pretty silver ink.

After I was done I have my card for my niece and with a little cropping and adding text I was able to update my blog header with my holiday banner.

Thanks for stopping by!
