I’ll be honest, this one pushed me out of my comfort zone big time – I’m not 100% sold on it I think because it’s not executed all that well, or maybe it’s just that I’m not a fan of a black cardstock cardbase. The one thing I AM a fan of, though, is trying new things – I actually love getting pushed outside of my comfort zone … I don’t always love the results, but I sure do enjoy the journey. I often find new unexpected loves that I’d never try otherwise. In this case I’ll definitely give the gilding wax another try, but I’ll watch a few tutorials first, and perhaps try on burgundy or navy cardstock next time. Either way, it was a fun experiment for a very rustic looking card. This is for the Basic Black challenge over at Colorful Options.
