For Ky's MIX challenge, which I can't link to right now because it's gone AWOL (it's back MIX206. It was pretty much a free-for-all except for the mixed media component and we had to add a tag/bookmark/element which could be removed to show a hidden message. This might be a birthday card, whatever it's used for, I'll stamp a suitable message on the back of the bookmark.
I used the Layered Gesso Background for my main layer. Gesso, then I stamped the Verve sentiment in black, the heart in red and two feathers in blue lagoon. When dry, I added buff titanium and baby blue acrylic paints, and when they were dry, I rubbed in some metallic lusters. After that I used an SU mask and added the modelling paste. Edged it with gold and cerulean blue paints, after adding the little bit of trellis to hold the bookmark. Then I added some chunky gold EP. I also added some gold eyelets, just in case the bookmark might fall out the bottom. It's finished with two Spellbinders feathers and a paper button from my stash.
The bookmark was stamped and embossed on white card, washed with Twinkling H2O, coloured with Intense pencils, spattered, and Stickles for the blossoms.
Counting this for the WT challenge, since the Twinkling H2Os are definitely old (the eyelets, too), the new is the SU mask I used, borrowed is the technique tutorial and there's plenty of blue.

Wow, so many great elements here!! Love the beautiful design on the bookmark and the fabulous texture and designs on the bg too- especially that piece of a die on the bottom left and the gold on the edges!
