I knew I wasn’t going to get this post up in time to join the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches but I really liked the sketch so I’m using it anyway.
It’s another card using the gold foil envelope inserts from the Watercolor Christmas card kit. I made the original version of the card for the Shoebox Swap I had on the 9th and then tried the other two versions to see if I could tone down the shine some. It was really difficult to get a picture of it.
Here is another version using some black ink I sponged over the top of the gold foil.
For this last one, I tried the tarnished look using silver and copper embossing powders. I also cut the top panel 1/8″ smaller around than I intended but I think I like the thicker border.
