Stamp a faire-Jessica’s Challenge

Jessica’s challenge is to use the 8th anniversary material of bronze in a project.   I did not have a bronze embossing powder so I made my own.  I wanted a thick rough looking embossing powder like the Hammered Gold that I have from Emerald Creek Trading Company, so I mixed some of that with some very old and very chunky looking silver and gold from Frantage.  I loved the resulting mix and I really love that I used up every bit of the mix so there was nothing left to store for that never project in the future.

I used a stencil brush to add heavy brush marks of embossing ink to the feathers and background.  A light touch would not work here as the heavy powder would blow away, the instant I put the heat gun to the paper.

The Papertrey Ink Scroll Frame added to the Vintagy look of the embossed What the Doodle Feathers.  The bow is from Maggie Holmes.
