Gold Hellos

     This Hello is for you.

This was put together using a sketch challenge by Sketch Saturday (sketch below)

I started with white cs and 5 Distress Oxides: Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Broken China and Wilted Violet.  Using just a very small acrylic block with some ink and water: I squished it on the white.  I trimmed it down and rounded the corners and let it dry completely.
On black card stock, I stamped the sentiment 'hello' from Recollections and gold embossing powder.  I trimmed that piece as well and anchored the rainbow piece on top.
I wrapped some pale pink silk yarn around and tied it in a knot.  I had to secure the knot with a dab of glue.
I then trimmed down a piece of gold cs from Recollections and rounded the corners and anchored everything on top.  From some of the trim, I cut the flag to go with the sketch and the set everything on top of of a black front.
A couple of paper flowers added and then everything set on a top fold black cs base.

Here is the sketch from 'Sketch Saturday'
