Greetings to you all, I hope this post finds you well.
After a busy couple of days, I am experiencing some pain so today (Thursday) has been a day of rest (well, knitting!) and tomorrow I plan on making cards all day! It's my dad's birthday next week so I want to make him something he will love.
Yesterday there was crafting! My first real go at using actual gilding flakes, I usually just use the gold leaf I have from past artworks. I have to say that I really enjoyed using them! I stamped an image with the flitterglu (note to self, don't press down so hard when stamping onto cheap card!) and then applied Yorkshire Dales mega flakes. I love the resulting effect.
The background paper is from a docrafts 6x6 pad, I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo ink. As there is sheet music in the background of the stamp, I tore a strip of vintage sheet music and distressed the edges (again with Vintage Photo ink) before placing it across the centre of my card. For interest, I decided to go with quirky and attach the central image at an angle.
I finished with some Frantage in the top right corner and a 'best mum' sentiment in the top left corner.
I used: IndigoBlu flitter flakes starter kit
Yorkshire Dales MegaFlakes
Darkroom Door stamp
Peerless Crafts Vintage Music Paper
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Docrafts Madame Payraud 6x6 Paper Pad
I am liking the finished result, and really enjoyed using gilding flakes so will certainly be using them again soon!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my card-leave me a comment to let me know what you think, I do enjoy reading them :)
Until next time, Happy Crafting xx
