I was asked on Sept. 12 on my FB page, Stampin Carol - Lots of Crafty Goodness, to recreate this card I made for The Rabbit Hole Designs using a gold base layer for the stencil and modeling paste. So, here goes!

I used TRHD "Merry & Bright 4x4" clear stamp and their "Triangle Mosaic 6x6" stencil.

I really don't think this card is up to their design team standards but I just had to try this. I used a brush gold base for the gorgeous green metallic paste and a brush silver for the wreath. The paste had a little tendency to smear on the gold or move. I had my stencil taped down pretty good but the gold was a bit slick.

I decided to use a brush silver for the wreath and embossed it with a black detail powder. I used my "Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool" on the silver but a few flecks still got through. Very minimal. (I 💓this tool!)  I added some red and yellow paint to the wreath and embossed the JOY. I fussy cut the wreath.

Over all it turned out good. I don't think I'll use paste on a metallic paper again though.  What do you think?
