Red and Gold at Gingersnaps

Hi, at Gingersnaps we are continuing the Asian theme, but this time with 'Red and Gold', a glorious combination.  I have chosen for my DT piece something really simple, an altered label.
Ha, you say whats altered about this................well I will show you...............
These are the products I used and what I started with.  An ordinary brownish Luggage Label and a Topper. First cut out the topper then using the red acrylic paint coloured it to fit the challenge.  Using the same red acrylic, paint the label.  Once dry, stamp the flowers randomly using gold paint dabber and stamp the word Hope in Archival Ink.  So there it is a simple Altered Luggage Label.  No fancy tricks or techniques, just plain and simple.
There are some wonderful examples from the DT at Gingersnaps if you get stuck for ideas.  Hope you will join in this fabulous colour challenge.  As usual make whatever you fancy using the colours Red and Gold.  The main thing is that you have fun.  Take care and will be around to visit you all after I have spent the day at LB Crafts for my first workshop, so exciting..............  Hugs Annette x

Incredible! Love that rich saturated red - it looks amazing the way you have painted it on. I would never think of that so that's for sharing yet another technique that I hope to be able to try sometime, sigh, so little time to craft!

Love the gold stamped flowers to. This is such a cool oriental piece you have created.
