Gold at Addicted to Stamps

I enjoyed making this challenge for Addicted to Stamps this week-the bit I didn't enjoy was trying to get a photograph that made any of it show up as gold. I ended up with a tutorial on 'Projected light and reflections when taking Photographs'-all very interesting and informative for sure.

Still bits that don't look gold but I did my best

Made a tag from gold card then ran it through a Cuttlebug folder. Used clear embossing powder over all of it to give it more texture. The gold die cut someone sent to me, two bits of a paper tray cloth embossed with gold, two bits of old ear rings, gold rush wording and a bit gold ribbon. All sounds simple really but it took hours to make :)


  1. WOW very gold indeed!!!
