Matte Metallic Gradient with subtle marbling base

Recently I went out for brunch to celebrate my upcoming birthday, and this matte metallic gradient stamping was the design I created. I went to B&H Buildings with my besties Lisa and Kim, for an amazing bottomless brunch with apple and pear mimosas.
