'To quilt or not to quilt...' TIO challenge #166 'Q & Gold'

Hi and welcome to The Cazz Bar.
This week, the lovely DT over on Dragons Dream Tag It On blog set the challenge for us all and this week the theme is 'The Letter Q and Gold' 

And here is my interpretation of the theme.

I used a Paper Artsy tag and scrapped some gold Go Create Metallic Paint from Tesco over the entire surface with a plastic scraper. 
I then stamped the rulers using a Papermania Urban stamp with versamark and used MicaBoss powder. Once I had heat embossed the MicaBoss, I used some guilding flakes to add texture and a golden sheen.

The patchwork stamp is from Dreamees and I stamped it 3 times with black archival ink.
The patches were coloured in with pencils. I cut them out and attached 2 of the 'blocks' onto the tag then cut a couple of squares out from the 3rd 'block' and used foam pads to decoupage them up. 

The machine, scissors and reel were cut on the silhouette cameo using GSD files, again from Dreamees cuttables cd (number 3 to be exact). I used a sepia fine line pen to draw on the thread on the reel. The inked the machine and scissors with versamark ink and embossed with gold fine detail powder. 
I wrote the sentiment by hand (sorry about the handwriting lol).

I'd like to enter this into the Dragons Dream TIO challenge #166

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by my blog today x
