The Color Room Palette #162

Here's my second posting as guest designer at the fabulous The Color Room.  The background was created using the The Crafter's Workshop damask pattern with some light molding paste, mist and stamp work.  I frequently use this technique, and if I want to add some opulence and glow to the pattern, I spritz on some lovely gold metallic mist on the raised molding paste area after I wipe them down with a sea sponge to remove as much as the previous color mist as possible. The gold metallic misting spray is absent in the above picture because I was trying to stay true to the challenge palette.   You have two weeks from October 25 to complete the challenge.

Ok, so I've shared my rendition of the challenge, let me see you post yours at The Color Room under palette #162.

The punch work are Memory Box Dies. They're truly elegant looking and very detailed.

Thanks for stopping by.
