Treasure Gold Tag

Hello, and thanks for popping over to check out my Treasure Gold tag today.  I’ve been having a nice play this week with Fresco Paints and Treasured Gold from Paper Artsy.  

I made this tag using Inky Pool and Limelight paints as the base. The shine on top comes from Sapphire and Spanish Topaz Treasured Gold. I have to admit, this is the first time I’ve used Treasured Gold and I am hooked!  It’s waxy but not sticky and instantly (and easily) transforms paper into a true metallic look.

I also like how rich the colors are and the quality of the faux metal look.  I think the tag and ATC look like old embossed tin plates.

My bases here are a plain shipping tag and a Ranger manila ATC. The tag and ATC are both dry embossed with texture fades. In between them, I added in Tim Holtz’s new Sizzix Frameworks die as an additional layer.  I used a mix of time stamps and a bit of metal Idea-ology to finish it off.
