The prompt this week at Mixed Media Mondays was GOLD. So I made a background of copper and gold acrylic paint, added a gel medium transfer of the girl,stamped and embossed the clocks and then masked and stamped the Auld Lang Syne stamp on top. Then I added some thick gold acrylic paint to the edges and heated with my embossing gun until it blistered. Don't you just love the texture that creates? I didn't get a very good impression with the Auld Lang Syne stamp though. I think maybe I should have masked the space for the clocks, then stamped the song, then the embossed clocks last. I wonder if that would have made a clearer impression?
Then Emily asked for yet another birthday card. I wanted to use stamps again as I find stamps to be quite challenging for some reason. The cupcakes stamp came free with a magazine, if I remember correctly. It is embossed with black then painted with twinkling H2Os. Anyway, here's the card. As I said in my earlier post, cards really aren't my thing, and this one took a lot longer than it should have,
The scrapbook Magazine is out I believe so I need to go and find myself a copy. I shoud have another article in this month. This one is about using bubble wrap.
