whats black and white and gold all over.......

the challenges on this weeks TMTA and MAMOT




Black and white is a favourite of mine but I feel it can bit a bit harsh at times so I wanted to see if I could make a soft piece using the colours. I think I've managed to with this ATC, although the sprinkling of embossing powder shows up a bit more in the photo than it does in real life, so I'm not 100% happy with it.



I love working with touches of gold, but wanted to use it as the main colour for this moo card given that gold is the theme this week. I wanted to moo to have a meaning behind it, rather than just make a random gold piece, so I went with passing time and the golden years of life.

Great work Deb, it's always nice if you can put some meaning behind the project, helps to make it a complete piece I think. :o)

both fab pieces - love how you've captured the soft B&W feel on the ATC, and the rich gold on the moo is lovely.

both are fab Deb. I think the first one is definitely not harsh and I like the way you have positioned the white flowers off the edge. the theme for the second one is a great idea. like the charm you've used.(Oas well as the rest of the piece of course!)

The first piece is very soft, almost looks like a slightly worn photo. The gold piece is very opulent!
