TCP Tuesday - Go For the Gold

It's TCP Tuesday again. In honor of the recent Olympics, Lori has challenged us to create a project that includes something gold.

Gold is very trendy right now. I picked up some American Crafts gold glittery paper and  matching ribbon from Paper Source at Christmas so I was all set to go for the gold. I stamped the Bubble Therapy image onto Copics X-Press It cardstock and then cut out with a Spellbinders Nestie. I stamped the bubbles portion of the image again and after coloring the edges with Copic Markers, I fussy cut out and then added Ranger Diamond Stickles. I stamped the bathtub portion of the image onto the gold glitter paper with Stazon ink, fussy cut out and adhered to the main image. I then layered on the previously finished bubbles portion. All the patterned papers from the Teresa Collins Family Stories pad. I stamped the sentiment onto one of the papers and cut into a banner shape, placing it over the gold ribbon. Lastly, I added a bit of gold thread behind the bow and a few pink and gold sequins.
