This month's MFT Stamps Creative Challenge is to use gold! It is not a secret how much I love adding gold to just about any card I make! There are a lot of great products out there right now, including one I used on my card today, Gold Texture Luxe Metallic Paste.
I used the paste and star stamps from Count The Stars to create a shiny and pretty neat background on my card. Using watercolor paper, to deal with the wetness of the paste, I spread the Texture Luxe paste on the paper with a palette knife. Applying the paste is almost like spreading peanut butter on a sandwich. You will not need to use much of the paste as it is very intense in color.
Please note that you need to remove the paste immediately from your stamps and tools.

Once the background was dry, I added more stars, this time stamping them in Delicata Gold ink. Then I die cut Black Licorice card stock with Die-namics Stars and Wishes. I mounted the die cut word to the card with foam. A piece of Black Licorice card stock was stamped with a sentiment from Count the Stars and heat embossed with gold powder. I trimmed the card stock and notched the one end before adhering it to the card underneath the die cut word.
