Midas Touch Tag by Tonya Gibbs

Hi everyone it my day over the Die-Namites Blog.  Check out the blog for some fantastic inspiration from other Die-Namites DT members. 

Lately I've been on a "BRIGHT" and "SHINNY" kick!   For some reason the more vibrant the better. I'm usually more of a vintage shabby chic kind of girl.   I've found that experimenting with these different colors has really kick started my creative juices.

Today I would love to share my Midas tag. I'm noticing a shiny gold trend in the scrappy world, from dipped leaves to feathers. Seems like a shinny surface is supper chic these days! 

I started with a little gold here and there, and before long my tag started to look like it was kissed by King Midas himself.

I used the Swirly Butterfly die on orange cardstock, then used a Versa ink pen to heat emboss  "Queen's Gold" embossing powder from Ranger Ink.   I love how it looks like he is molting.    The filigree flower was originally antique gold, and I used the same embossing powder on it.  The button finished off my focal center perfectly!


I think it is unexpected to see rich gold leaves. So I did the same embossing technique on the Leafy Branch cuts. Don't they look like 24k gold?   
I want to challenge you to unleash your inner Midas, and gold plate your next Die-Namites project!

Thanks for stopping in today.
