Gold ! .........2 Challenges


Created By Hand and My Time To Craft both have Gold in their themes this week so here is a piece for both challenges.
Every time I hear the news it's all about money...so I thought I'd do a piece with that in mind !
The background is scrunched tissue covered with pearlescent glue.... then alchohol ink was drizzled on it and buffed when dry. The words are written on the computer.
The charm is a mix of bits from my "wotsit" box.
Thanks for looking !

Beautifully crafted, RubyMay. I love the scrunched tissue and this certainly fits the Gold theme beautifully. I love the look of the pearlized colors.
