I picked up this Hero Arts stencil a while ago, and finally got to put it to use.
I love the bold design, and really didn't want to detract from it, so I kept this fairly simple.
The stencil was inked up with a whole bunch of yellow and orange distress inks.
Then I used a sponge dauber to ink up just the center and added some gold embossing powder there. I actually started with clear, and did a couple layers of clear embossing before the gold....this gives it a bit more body and texture and puffs it up a bit more. You'll see some sparkles in the embossing, that's because I was at my friend JJ's when I made this and she had a home brewed embossing powder which mixed two types of gold and some clear.
The sentiment is from a previous My Monthly Hero kit, and I added a bit of woodgrain paper to frame the sentiment.
