Last summer when we made my DD's wedding invitations we had a slight miscalculation and ended up with lots of extras. Yesterday, I took one and re-made it over into an anniversary to send the happy couple for their first anniversary.
This has two coats of Gesso over the stamped/printed invitation and uses a leftover rosette and pieces of dp that I used to make a banner for the head table at the wedding.

Here's the original invitation.
The Medallion images were stamped in Elegant Eggplant and we printed the invitation info.
Today's Ways to Use it Challenge was to use angels and I decided to another mixed media re-do of the invite.
Here's the bg with the first layer of toothpaste and the snowflakes in stamped off Pacific Point
A close look at the angel in toothpaste.
Here's the stencil placed back over the toothpaste so I can add a thick layer of Gesso over it.
First layer of Gesso in place and snowflakes stamped. You can see the gaps that the stencil left.
I've added some Gesso to fill in the gaps and now I'm using a wet wipe to soften the snowflakes.
Here's the final card with sentiment stamped, ribbon banners added, and gold stickles accents on the angel and in the centers of the snowflakes. You can see I used the same sketch from yesterday's sketch challenge.
