Black and Gold @ ATSM

Hi and welcome back to a post to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at ATSM.
This week it is out photo inspiration so without further ado here is my take

on this luxurious photo montage.

As you can see I was pretty literal with my interpretation.
Black base card, gold glitter embossed panel and a die cut stags head.
The panel is a background stamp from Uniko embossed with a shimmery Stampendous gold EP and the die cut stags head, a freebie from before Christmas in a mag, is cut from gold mirror card and simply laid on top.
The sentiment, also from Uniko was stamped and embossed with WOW Super fine gold EP.
The overall effect is quite masculine, almost a gentleman's club look.
So what will you take inspiration from? It's all down to you and your imagination, but if you are still stuck for inspiration the rest of the team have come up with some great ideas, see them here.
