I have been trying to post up this little bookmark for the past week, whether it will ever be used is another question, since purchasing an e-reader I do not have the need to use this item. The e-reader is convenient when travelling but I much prefer to hold an actual book.
Paper Artsy has a Challenge: 'Shiny Stuff.' and this is my entry.
You will recognise the Jofy flower stamp.
I covered cardstock with embossing paste and pressed the stamp into this to create an impression.
When dry I painted with a mix of Acrylics and Inks.
Stamped some text in Black Archival.
Iridescent Gold wash applied all over
Treasure Gold rubbed on the edges and to highlight leaves and flower.
Click on pics to see texture.
It is not easy to photograph 'shiny' but I do hope you can recognise that it is there.
Thanks for the visit and do have a good day.
