Golden Dream Catcher

Hi there, 

Today I'd like to share another card from the August Reveal using the Dream Catcher Maiden Set 865

I began by making the background for my maiden. I applied Nuvo Golden Crystal Glimmer Paste through the Dreamweaver Petit Fern stencil onto Kraft cardstock. This was set aside to dry.
The maiden image was stamped on to vellum with Versamark and then heat embossed with Gold Detail.
The image was colored with Copics from the back - this never looks very good! 
But when it is turned over to the front the colors are nice and muted. The image was then stuck down to a piece of sticker paper.
I fussy cut around the feathers at the bottom with my Tonic Mini Scissors and then used the Spellbinders Decagons die and had the feathers come over the bottom of the die.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and it was also embossed with Gold Detail. This was then cut out using Spellbinders Framed Tags One.
Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse was sponged on the background piece and around the edges of the sentiment.
To assemble the card I popped up the maiden on mounting tape. a piece of gold ribbon was attached to the sentiment and was wrapped around the back of the card front, leaving some of the feathers on top of the ribbon. The cardfront was layered to cream and then to a Kraft card base. Some Nuvo Golden Sunset Glitter Drops were added to the sentiment and beaded areas on the dream catcher.
... and that finished up my card for today. Hope you've enjoyed my share? The photo below shows the various dimensions of the different products.
Here is a list of the products used that you will find in the store:
