Gold Dipped

I seem to be seeing lots of gold in the crafting world.  Especially gold dipped items, such as feathers.  I thought I might try my hand in it and this is the lovely result.  Now….what do I use these for?

I stamped some pretty little feathers and cut them out with an exacto-knive.  I inked up the edges a little to give them some interest and applied versamark ink to the areas I wanted to emboss.   After applying the embossing glitter, I use a little paint brush to get all the extra off the paper, and to clean up the edges a little.  I used my heat tool to melt the powder/glitter.

Though I really like how it turned out, I think I need to invest in a nice gold embossing powder without glitter.  But, this was what I had on hand when I got the wild hair to give it a go.

Thanks for reading
