Anything but a Card is Fools Gold *

I must admit I felt a little stumped to come up with something relating to Fools Gold.  Then it came to me a few sun rays bouncing off a wall with a pile of fools gold.  And there you have it.  I used 2 stencils with modelling paste.  Painted the sky and rays dark blue, red, orange gold until I got the effect I wanted.  I pained the bricks brown and tan.  I then used alot of grotty plastic faceted beads I had lying about and stuck them in a pile.  I painted them over using gold and red paint.  Once all painting finished I used 3 Inka golds, copper, champagne gold and gold to give the shining effect.  That's it folks!

Why not head on over to Anything But A Card and join in this months fab challenge - we would love to see you there and what's more you will see some fabulous inspiration from the design team makes.
