Created Byhand-Gold

Gold is the subject of today's Created Byhand challenge. For the background I shaded copper colored cardstock with soot black and aged mahogany distress inks then sprayed with gold webbing and immediately added gold embossing powder and heat embossed. Postcard image is stamped on vellum. Embellished with gold ribbon and trim.
