I recently watched a youtube video on using gilding flakes by Christine Stokes. As I have some flakes in my stash, I decided to give it a try. Here's the link to the video.
I had two pots of Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes (Summer Meadow - gold and Silver Dream) both pots have varigated colours in them. I used two widths of double sided sticky tape for the vertical line, then die cut into a square using a die with a decorative edge.
I used two Memory Box dies "Pippi Butterfly - 98508" and "Isabella Butterfly - 98507). First cutting in white card and then cutting a double sided sticky sheet and applying the flakes to one of the sticky surfaces.
I used Wow! Rich Gold embossing powder, heat set, for the Waffle Flower sentiment which is part of their "Essential Sentiments" stamp set.
A wonderful way to use gilding flakes SamReplyDelete
Thank you so much. I enjoyed playing with the flakes xDelete
Sam loved what you made and your attempt was 100% perfect... thanks for sharing in my group and using the ytube I added...xxReplyDelete
Thanks for the love and for sharing such a great link xDelete
I do have some remnants of gilding flakes in a box but no proper glue to fix them, but this looks like a great alternative with the double sided tape and the sticky sheets Sam, so will definitely give this a try. The card looks so pretty with the butterflies and the two different widths of vertical strips. xReplyDelete
Thanks Pat, give it a go. It's super easy to achieve a good look xDelete
