DYSU#101 Silver and Gold

Its Thursday and time for the new challenge from DYSU! We would like to see you use Silver and Gold on your creations!

I was lucky enough to be able to use the Rhoda Design Studios Retro Camera Images found here to work with. 
Here is my take on this weeks challenge...


I stamped a simple background in Versamark ink and then heat embossed using stampendous silver and gold embossing powders.

The custom camera patterned paper was created by pasting one of the Retro Camera images from the Vintage Camera Digi set by 'Rhoda Design Studio' repeatedly and then printing onto aqua cardstock. 

I printed one of the other Retro Cameras onto Sahara sand cardstock, fussy cut, paper pieced with patterned paper and then popped the lens up using foam adhesive. I went in added just a touch of shading with my Copic marker.
The speech a bubble and sentiment are computer generated.

Don't forget to stop by the DYSU blog >here<  to see what the rest of the fantastic DT creations and for full details of our sponsors for this week and the brilliant prizes up for grabs - it could be you!! :)
