Gold and Green

Creativity still firing on all cylinders here, it may be cold and frosty outside in here the ideas are flowing and the heat gun working hard to keep up!

Sue's latest Tanda Teaser is Green and Gold.   You do not have to use Tanda stamps you do not have to stamp to enter just have fun with the theme.    For this card I've used Mack Set 2 heat embossed on green card layered onto gold card.   The roses are from the same set.   One of my favourite images it speaks for itself and needs very little embellishment.

Allsorts challenge this week is to use just two colours but you are allowed a plain white base.  My base is a bit off white hope it  will pass.








Love the elegance of the Green Gold combination and so made a second card this time using the Thank you sentiment from Tanda's Art Nouveau Set 1   This was simply stamped and hear embossed onto green card, and again layered onto gold card.  A green mat cut to go behind with Martha Stewart punched corners.    Feathers just seem to match and suit the style.

A second entry then for Tanda
and a second entry to Gingersnaps Thank you notes
At Marks Finest Papers, Speedy the Cat is also looking for Thank you Cards.

  9. your green and gold tones are lovely Zoe! Both great cards, and those feathers are the perfect match! I love the peacock stamp, it's one of my fav Tanda stamps and reminds me of a wonderful arts and crafts house near Windermere, can't remember the name ATM, begins with b though, they have a room with a beautiful peacock frieze.
