I have always liked the colors Blue and Gold together, and this paper wall flower is the result of experimenting with light blue paper and this vintage gold ink that I had in my collection.
When used on plain white paper the gold yields a pretty saturated effect, but layered on the blue it looses some of its kick and mutes to something that looks a little antiqued.
Quite interesting... Depending on the light, the petals shine from shimmer gold to pewter to brown bronze.
See for yourself :)
