Melissa Phillips shared how to "antique" a gold embossed piece. Here is the link: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2014/08/saf-2014-explore-the-regency-era-with-melissa-phillips.html
I did not use a frame, but a medallion. The stamped flowers are from the Paper Trey ink County Fair kit, and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from Shakers and Sprinkles. Here is my project:
The papers are from Anna Griffin--so elegant, perfect for the Regency period. My large tag is made from gold cardstock.
The other project from the Regency period uses stitching. I cross stitched all day practically to get the stitching done. That's why I am so poky on making my projects! I hope to be able to finish that card on Monday. I am taking a break tomorrow, and now it is time to retire for the night! I enjoyed all the projects at Stamp a Faire. Thank you for a fun time.
