Homemade paper

The Wednesday Stamper theme is to use homemade or mulberry paper.

I made this paper several years ago using a kundalini set. I added marigold petals, wool, threads and gold flakes. I never knew what to do with it, but here it is now!

For the background base I collaged various papers, and then inked and stamped. I find this gold EP a bit overpowering on the scan.
