Colour Perceptions - Teal

On ArtVentures,  July's colour was Teal and my perception of it is relaxing and restful.

I started by colouring a piece of white cardstock with Memento Zeal Teal ink. I then placed a stencil at the top right and coloured over it with the same ink.

I stamped the Penny Black stamp in the centre with Tsukineko Versafine Deep Lagoon. I added a piece of Tim Holtz tissue tape on the left edge and coloured it with both inks.  To finish it, I used a Versamrk embossing pen on the bottom and embossed it with Stampendous Aged Teal Embossing Enamel.

Colour Perceptions - Gold

ArtVentures for June, the colour is Gold.  I perceive this as a rich and wealthy colour.

I started by stamping a background stamp with Indigoblu glue, then added gold leafing over it.

I had some gold Lamé fabric sitting on my desk so I thought I would us it on the card. I shredded the edges and glued it on. I used a copyright free picture of a queen and embossed the edges with gold, then mounted it on the fabric. 

I then edged three sides of the ATC with a gold leafing pen.
