I'm not a huge fan of gold, unless it's in jewelry form!! But, I thought I'd give myself a challenge. So instead of using gold paper, or embossing powder I stitched this heart from the Paper Smooches Needle Little Love stamp set in gold. Here is my progress:
I first stamped the heart with black Stazon ink onto a piece of muslin.
Then I started cross stitching following the pattern in the heart.
Then I trimmed around the muslin and frayed the edges. I wanted to add more gold, so I painted a piece of watercolor paper with gold acrylic paint, and glued on the stitched fabric piece. I decided to make a tag out of it and attached a small bow, punched a hole and threaded some more floss through it. So that's my interpretation of using gold in my paper crafts! Thanks so much for having a look!
