From Places Abroad - Tunisia

I have been wanting to play in the Altenew monthly challenges. They are so generous in choosing FOUR winners each month, so I am tackling the current one, based on a ceiling in Tunisia.   I was so intimidated at first, but once I decided on this gold metallic medallion, things got a bit easier, and I'm really pleased with the way this turned out.  The colors are my favorites, after all!

Altenew May Challenge Tunisia

supplies: Bazzill Robin's Egg, dark blue, and white cardstock, gold metal sheet, Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis pendant die, Altenew's Vintage Roses, aqua, blue, and green inks, Simon's Artful Flowers sentiment, Ranger super fine detail embossing powder, gold enamel dots

This is waaaaay out of my comfort zone, but I'm so glad I gave it a try.  It's good to have a good stretch once in awhile!

Here's the inspiration photo:
