Dag 321 Goud

Eerste zaterdag van de maand is de uitdaging bij LIM altijd een kleur. Deze week is de uitdaging goud.
Mijn eerste reactie hierop was 'kerstkaart' maar hoewel het Juli is, wilde ik eigenlijk geen kerstkaart maken voor LIM. Bovendien daagt LIM me elke week uit tot iets buiten mijn normale pad, dus moest ik iets anders bedenken.
De rest van de dag ging op aan nuttige dingen, de was, opruimen en schoonmaken van het huis. En vlak voor ik boodschappen ging doen, kreeg ik een idee, knopen!! Gouden knopen, die moest ik ergens hebben. Geerfd van mijn oma.
Zoeken in mijn knopendoos, vond ik van alles, maar niet de knopen die ik zocht. Wel een andere gouden knoop.
En toen ik mijn Button Buddies stempelset uit de la trok, was het idee snel geboren. Had ik eerst nog het idee dat ik met laagjes zou werken, ik heb het toch bijna 1 layer gehouden.
Eerst de slak gestempeld en ge-embossed. Daarna afgemaskerd. Met behulp van de Stamp-a-Magic heb ik het gras gestempeld, en daarna hier en daar een bloemetje tussen het gras.
De bloem zelf heb ik daarna gekleurd met een verfstift, de blaadjes heb ik met een blender pen ingekleurd met de gestempelde inkt.
Daarna het masker er af gehaald, en de knoop, als het huisje, op de slak geplakt.
Tenslotte heb ik de tekst gestempeld, en ook ge-embossed met goud poeder.


The first saturday of the month, there is a colour challenge at LIM. Today the colour was 'gold'.
My first reaction was 'Christmas Card' but, although it is July, I didn't want to send in a christmas card again.
Besides, LIM always challenges me, to make something out of my comfort zone. So I needed to think of something else.
The rest of the day went by, doing usefull things, things like laundry, tidying and cleaning the house. And just when I went crocery shopping, I had an idea. Buttons. I must have gold buttons somewhere. A heritage from my grandmother.
Looking trough my button box, I couldn't find the button I was looking for, but I did found another gold button.
So I took out my Button Buddies stamp set, and found a snail. I thought is was a perfect match.
I stamped the snail on a card and heat embossed it with gold embossingpowder.
Then I masked the snail, and stamped the grass with use of a Stamp-a-Magic. The same way I stamped some flowers in the grass.
I coloured the flowers with paintmarker, and the leaves with a blender pen and the stamped ink.
Then I removed the mask, and attached the button as if it was the shell of the snail.
Finally I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.

Love your snail and thanks for bringing back fond memories of my mother and grandmother's button boxes. I loved to sort and count them as a child.
