“Mimbreno Possums” was embossed in black on an eight sided piece of white card stock. The piece was edged with a gold Krylon Leafing pen and glued to a background made by moistening a Melitta Coffee Filter and painting it with orange and metallic gold acrylic paint . These two pieces were layered over handmade white paper and a background made by stamping “Mimbreno Swallows” in gold on black paper. This was layered on tan confetti card stock.
