While I was rummaging through my cardstock, I came across a piece of gold mirror card that I had used for Christmas decorations some years back. It got me thinking I would try stamping on it and see what happens.
The stamping was relatively straight forward, taking a photo of the finished card without my reflection in the mirror sheen was more tricky! So I took the card outside and took a little video of the card which shows the true colour and shine.
I used black StazOn ink for the stamping on the mirror card, everything else just seems to slide right off the surface. I used a red rubber stamp (as StazOn ink can damage the clear ones), opting to use the Penny Black cling stamp called "Brilliance -40-806". The sentiment was another Penny Black stamp from the set called "Sprinkles & Smiles 30-297", it's a clear set and I have taken a chance stamping in StazOn, giving it a good wash after use.
I gave the stamping a quick waft with the heat gun to ensure the ink was dry, then coloured the berries using a red Posca Pen, once the red was dry, I added some gold highlights to the berries
Brilliant Sam, the hardest paper to take a photo of but it turned out stunning xxReplyDelete
