Now, with out further ado, my project! (You can click on the photos to see the detail better.)

This was very simple. First, I picked a stamp. Then I used a piece of foam cut and dry to apply duo to the stamp itself. I then stamped the image on the piece of white cardstock. Once the duo was dry (but sticky) I laid down the Gildenglitz over top of the stamped areas and then used the textured sponge to rub away the Gilding.

Now hop on over to Jan Hennings, and make sure you leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway!
