Gold Silver Black White
These colours from Sandi have sooooooooo much potential. I LOVED the challenge of this one as I would normally pair black or white with silver, but put gold with cream. I love jewellery with both silver (or white gold) and gold together but have never used them together in my artwork. Black and white I love, as regular readers will know. So what did I make?
....Something I've had in my head for a while!! I decided a bird would be perfect as he/she could have a black and white body with metallic feathers.
I cut the body shape out in card and covered it with a retro scrapbook paper of black squares on white. I stamped over this, and added peeloff (yep!!! don't forget, they have their uses sometimes!!) dots.
Each tail feather is different. There is a silver piece of card covered in sticky backed ribbon, cuttlebugged foil leftover from a workshop I took from Sue Roddis [she's teaching it at The Stamp Attic on and they have a few places left on the second day if you're quick!!], and cuttlebugged gold card embossed with white EP and dipped in glitter whilst still hot.
Have fun playing with these metallics, plus black and white. I think they'll be some amazing interpretations as the colour combo is so amazing
