BIA Note Book - Vintage Gold



I did another little notebook - today - again just experimenting and it fits the challenge on This Thursday which is Marvelous Mettalics.

I used a piece of scrap paper I had - which was pale blue to start with. Dabbed on a bit of colour here and there, then stamped it, and embossed in black the 'lady'.

Swished over some gold and then heated up the embossing again so that it came through the gold.

Stamped and embossed the patterns at the top, then with a complimentary chalk blue/green, I stamped and embossed a little trio of leave stamp which came with my prize Trees Stamps from Stamping up Stamps around the page to create a vintage look wall paper effect.

This positively shimmers in daylight sunshine.
