Forgotten wishes

I transferred this image (from Iran's first women's magazine) to a tag using solvent.

With the SSS Snowflake stencil, embossing ink, and clear embossing powder, I created a resist for the watercolor background and lady's dress.

I applied gold embossing power on the harp body but didn't like it so I ironed it off.

The faint impression of gold color which was left behind works for an aged-effect.

Some text seems appropriate to finish it off but this was only an experiment in techniques.

I decided to just let the image (and the post's title) speak for itself.

I've entered it in the drawing at the Simon Say's Stamp Wednesday blog challenge, where the prompt is "emboss it."
