started this card from a large piece of artwork done with large
calligraphic words and using walnut ink, when dry I swished over
the words with a wet brush. When that was dry I wrote small
words using gold leaf adhesive, then applied the variegated red
& gold leaf. I cut the artwork into small strips and
interwove and glued them to a textured off white thick mulberry
type paper. I glued that down onto a dark brown cardstock. I
used my thermal embossing technique for the words "Happy
Birthday" with gold embossing powder.
