Old Fashioned Girl for Cheryl

I made this atc for Cheryl as she kindly agreed to swap her beautiful Mask atc with me.
This atc has quite a few techniques on it. The background is watercolour paper which has been scribbled on with a Krylon gold leafing pen. I then painted over the top with green and yellow watercolour paints. When dry, I sponged the paint off the gold leafed areas with a baby wipe and stamped on it in black Memories ink using a Hobby Art flourish stamp (I was partly responsible for Chris designing this particular stamp after nagging him for more background designs lol)
The heart is card cut from a paper template I made and is covered in dark red pressed bougainvillea petals. You just glue them on all over with a clear drying glue and trim off the excess round the edges when it's dry. I love the soft textured look of the petals.
The girl is stamped. She's part of a Crafty Individuals stamp as is the title. The pieces are coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
