Altering Wood Veneer in the Blue Moon Kit

Good afternoon! My post is coming to you a little late today but I'm here now. I made a pocket page with my Blue Moon Daily Diary kit but wanted to alter one of the wood veneer words. I took my gold pen out from the Show and Tell Classic Kit (sold out) masked half of the word off with a piece of washi from the Blue Moon DD kit.

I wasn't sure how the wood would take the ink but it dried up fairly quickly and still looked gold and not a dingy brown like I feared it might be. 

I considered doing this with some of my stamp inks or some acrylic paints so those are always an option if you don't have this gold pen.

I went for a pretty feminine look on this page and love the soft feel. The cards I chose from the kit are from Maggie Holmes with her Open Book line.

The wood veneer stands out a little extra with the addition of the gold ink.

The embellishments in this kit added the perfect finishing touch to this frilly, soft page. But what I love is that if I would've chosen different cards in the kit and different embellishments, I could have a much more boyish, saturated color scheme.
