 It's time for another Just Us Girls challenge and another week that I have to opportunity to be a guest there.  Challenge #301 is to use GOLD.  Gold on a card or project has been pretty hot for some time so I loved the chance to add it to my card. 
 I used some gold embossing powder and some metallic gold cardstock to cut my word die.  But, first off, I created a simple background with some Distress Stains on watercolor paper.  I love to touch a few colors to my piece of paper, give it a spritz of water and then walk away and leave it to dry.  I am always amazed at the results when I come back to work with my piece. 
I used an Altenew flower and a leaf sprig by Waltzing Mouse.  I stamped the flower with white ink and embossed that with white embossing powder on warercolor paper.  For my coloring I simply touched the stamped flower with some Distress Stains.  This is such a fun way to add color.  The word die is from Winnie & Walter.  
Be sure to play along at Just Us Girls.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
