Fortune Cookie Bday Card

Tried a new technique: use Modeling Film for dimensional look. Had bought the Modeling Film quite some time ago and put it away. Came across the Modeling Film when I was cleaning up my craft room. Stamped & die cut the Fortune Cookie onto the Modeling Film. Used heat tool to soften the Modeling Film. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink on edges of the Fortune Cookie after softening & shaping the Fortune Cookie. Used a marker to give the stamped image back the stamped portion that was lessened by the heat tool. Used watercolor for coloring on the Fortune Cookie. Added gold glitter to the background.
