Good morning, friends Swapna here with my solo post for this month. This month our kind sponsor is Right at Home Stamps, hope you looked at their gorgeous release and other products. Our challenge for this month is New to Me, hope you have already entered your take on challenge.
Now coming to my take on challenge. I had Gilding flakes in my stash for nearly year now but never used and our challenge motivated me to use it. These were the main supplies I used for my card. Its a gate fold card. I stamped image with versamark ink on black card-stack and used sticky embossing powder in order to use Indigoblu peacock gilding flakes.
Prepared the gatefold card front and used banner embossing folder on top and bottom of the card, which adds subtle texture to the card base.
I followed below steps for Gilding
*Stamp image (if more solid area is there then better) with versamark ink (don’t forget to use powder tool)
*Pour sticky embossing powder, keep the heat tool on for 30-40 seconds before coming to paper.
*Melt the powder quickly (don’t apply too much heat, it might loose its stickiness) and apply enough amount of Gilding flakes, rub with finger.
*After 5-10 seconds remove extra flakes with stencil brush/soft scrub.
I trimmed the gilded card panel and mounted on slightly bigger yellow card card-stack and made the belly band used a sentiment from older Hero Arts stamp which says ‘You are someone special’. In real it looks so awesome but couldn’t justice with photo.
Here is closer look at the awesome gilding flaked design. I am really glad that i used them.
Here is my card, hope you liked it.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have already entered your project as there is very short time. Have an awesome day.
