I was thinking of making a Christmas card, with a gold Pan Pastel background. I wanted a solid gold, but instead ended up with a shimmery gold. So then I decided to cover it with green. But I still wanted a gold element, so I tried stenciling some stars with gold Pan Pastels. That didn't work either. I ended up just blending the gold into the green. Finally, I tried stamping with Versmark, and then lightly adding a brown (actually Orange Extra Dark) to the stamped image, and lightly blending it into the green, Although it doesn't show in the photograph, I was able to add a gold shimmer, by adding some Gold Pssst Sheer Shimmer. The image was then trimmed and matted. Ribbon was added before adding it to the card base.
