1. Stamp tag with Calais flourish stamp (Antique Linen or Vintage Photo). Ink edges with Vintage Photo. Set aside.
2. Cut 3 1/4 x 5" pieces of both black Bazzill cardstock and chipboard. You will also need template #2 if you have a kit or instructional CD (cut inside the black lines). If not, then you can create an oval in a Word document. First open a blank document. From the tool bar pick auto shapes, then basic shapes, then oval. The oval we are using is approximately 2 3/4 x 3 3/4". Really, it just needs to fit nicely on the piece of black paper. Set the chipboard and template to the side while you work on the black card.
embossing pad, and some embossing powder. I am using black embossing powder but you can use clear since our cardstock is black, it won't make a difference. Oh, and the last thing is a heat gun.
6. Lay the black card on a piece of computer paper and pour the embossing powder over the card. Don't worry about the amount...all the leftovers will just go back into the bottle.

mini mister onto a craft sheet or wax paper. Dip a small brush into Perfect Pearls (Heirloom Gold) and add to water. Swirl around until you make a small amount (a little goes a long way) of gold watery paint.
Perfect Pearls. If you run out just make some more. The background of the cardstock that is not embossed will turn shades of gold depending on how much of the Perfect Pearls you add to the water on your craft sheet, and will bead off the embossed portion as it dries.
|I admit this looks much richer in person.|
12. Add glue to the chipboard frame. Lay the black cardstock on top and burnish well to secure.
