The bg piece is black cs ran through leaf ef then swiped gold acrylic paint on a damp sponge. I did go back and paint some gold paint on some of the raised images. I put the piece back in the ef and layered on the white piece that got the same color treatment. Sentiment strip is plain black cs heat embossed in gold. All is mounted on white cs base. To create the sentiment I cut apart two stamps in the set. One was Happy Birthday and the other was Autumn Wishes. It has been quite liberating to cut into stamps. They can still be used stuck side-by-side but so fun to create my own.
Thanks for spending your time with me, now I am sharing this with:
