Time Out #37 - Inspired by Words Challenge

There's a new challenge over at the Time Out blog.  This time around our challenge is to be inspired by words, and those words are:
Friendship is Golden.

I saw a video by Jennifer McGuire earlier in the week where she used Perfect Pearls and Distress inks to create a faux textured metal paper panel on her cards.  I was so intrigued by it, so I created my card based on her technique.  I first masked off a rectangle in the middle of a white panel then sponged antique linen and vintage photo distress inks on it, blending them in the middle.  Jennifer used Perfect Pearls over the wet ink next, but I didn't have any.  However I did have some old containers of Pearl Ex from Stampin' Up that I've never used.  I believe these are the same product with different names.  The one I used is called Aztec Gold.  I just brushed it on and wiped some off with a dry cloth, removed the masking, and embossed it with an embossing folder.  Such a cool look!  I embellished it with a word die, banner and sentiment, and some Prima roses.  I matted that panel with a metallic gold paper.
You can see more inspiration on the Time Out blog and our guest for this challenge, Cornelia.
