Hello again! It's Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and I'm having a Fiesta, my own version of a party on a card! I wasn't sure I was going to make it to this party as I've been under the weather, however, I rallied at the last minute last night and finished this one out. Thank goodness for good medicine and that's a reason to party. As if I needed a reason!
So, we're having fun this week getting messy with our cards. This is one of my favorite things to do, the messier, the better, but, only if it's pretty! LOL! Nathalie Kalbach has designed some amazing stamps for Stampendous that let you get very messy but in the best way!

Here's what I used to create this card:
Delicata™ Golden Glitz Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
Glue Dots® in Craft and Mini
Metallic F/X™ in Amber Glow
Memories Mists™ in Bright Gold, Orange Juice, Cherry Smoothie and Plum Sake
May Arts Ribbon®
Arroyo Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Here's what I did to create this card:
Trim a piece of mixed media paper for your card front and spritz the entire thing with gold mist
Tape stencil over paper and spritz additional colors over the gold, remove stencil
Stamp Vintage Note in gold ink randomly over paper
Drip ink from Plum Sake and Cherry Smoothie onto paper
Using VersaMarker™, add ink in splotches, cover with gold embossing powder and heat
Using VersaMark™ pad, ink up Fiesta stamp and stamp onto scrap of white paper, add gold ep, heat
Trim around embossed image and spritz with Cherry Smoothie and Orange Juice mists, wipe excess off of embossed areas
Trim a piece of ribbon to place across card front, attach to paper securing ends behind paper
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold
Adhere card front to card base
Using foam squares, attach Fiesta image to card
Add glue dots randomly on card front and burnish on Metallic F/X with your finger
