Make it MondaY # 336

The challenge this week is to create a card with faux gilding.  At first glance, I thought the only possibility in my Papertrey Ink stash would be the feather.  In fact, I have down real gilding using this stamp set before.  I happened to find the What the Doodle Ornament Set and bonus, it was brand new.  Not only, did it work for this challenge, but it also satisfied my need to not have unused stamps in my stash,

It actually worked even better than I expected.   What slowed me down in getting it posted though, was finding a frame that enhanced but did not overpower the ornament.  I tried the Papertrey Ink Marquee frame first,  but it was  a bit too ornate to showcase the ornament well.

 

Here is the card:

  2. Thanks Nancy! This one is a case where the photo doesn’t do it justice. The shine of the faux gilding shows up so much better in real life.
