Go for the Gold day 4

I have had this stamp set since last winter and could not wait to pull it out and use it.  Since I am making Christmas Cards, why not.  These little guys as so cute, and done in gold, how could anyone resist.
As long as I was making cards, I did two.  Just different backgrounds.

I liked this one the best.
 But I will show you this one too

Both cards have a base of Stampin Up paper in a dark teal.  Then a layer of GKD paper from the Cold Snap pack.

I used a spellbinder die, Label 6 and cut two of them. On the larger one, I covered it with the Gold paste, and layered the smaller one on top.  I did stamp it with PTI stamp, Brushed Off.
I used my new ink from Mama Elephant called Winter. Sandy used it on one of her videos and I had to get it.  The images are from Penny Black, Joy to the World.  I used my Viva Gold Pearl Pen to color their scarfs.  I squished out a bunch of the gold on a piece of paper, and used a brush to apply.  I really got some texture that makes the scarfs look plush.  Don't they all look so happy?  Who cares if it is snowing!

Thanks again for stopping bye, I hope that you have time to enter this fun challenge.  Sandy is doing seven days and there is still time.  You can find it HERE

Have a great weekend!
