...and world peace

I can't believe February's almost over and this is the last royal challenge over at Gingersnap Creations! Today we're working with a color challenge: Jewel Colors with Gold.  Sure hope you play along and link up your creation by March 20 here:  GC92You may be crowned the next Home Page Artist or Ginger Gem!


 
My jewel colors are alcohol inks along with gold metallic mixative dabbed on glossy card stock.  Additional gold is the German scrap around the Gecko Galz image (see link on sidebar) and Adirondak gold paint dabber edging the word strips which are a cut up Stampin' Up rubber stamped sentiment Black card stock blank card base.  I finished with a regal flower and a jeweled stick pin which reminds me of a queen's scepter.
