|EMBOSSED AND COLOURED IMAGE|
Emboss the outline with gold and reach for the marker pens!
It still looks nice, and is ironically less "old hat" today than it was five years ago.
I've used Tombows and a blender pen for the colouring, and cut the lovely design (from Paper Roses) in half to fit over the aperture, mounting the top on some foam tape to add dimension.
A final "retro" touch is the gold outline sticker that I've carefully stretched around the edge of the oval cut out.. This is a little reminder to myself that no matter how exciting new techniques are sometimes the "oldies but goodies"are worth dusting off too.
