The distress stains were quite light really, so they needed something else. I embossed them -
Then I rubbed one of them with a little bit of gold cream -
And then there was the really deeply coloured background. I did use a vintage image on that one, but only a little one, and lots of other stuff, like gold leaf flakes, watch parts, and I had stamped it as well -
I wonder how long it will be before I get the colours out again.
