Merry Monday #239

There's a color challenge at Merry Monday and it took a little thinking.  They want you to use, copper, gold and turquoise.  I played around with a couple of ideas until I remembered an old TH die and it was the perfect thing IMHO.
The leaves and berries are cut from teal and copper shimmer paper respectively, and the branch from gold.  I tried to 'antique' them but the paper wasn't having any of it so I put on some Distress Crackle.  When it was dry I inked over it with sort of matching Distress Inks.  Here's a close-up.
The sentiment from HLS was embossed in copper.

Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Great idea to add the distress crackle to create a 'vintagy' effect, your card has such wonderful depth and texture for a CAS design!
