I'm still attempting to get a
stock of cards together so I
don't get caught out......again!
How're you doing?
Angela Radford is here today
card and tag set for us.....
"Here today to show you a card
I've made using a Mushroom Lane
stamp, they are so cute.
I started by making a background paper
using a Tim Holtz stencil with the
Once that was complete I used another
Tim stencil with crackle paste to add
more texture and when that was dry
I rubbed over it gently with gilding wax.
For the main image I began by die cutting
a square of card and applying oxide ink.
Splattered water on this and used tissue to
remove some of the ink.
I used Flitter glue with the stamp.
Apply the stamp lightly as this is very sticky
and don't leave it on the card for too long
or it can be difficult to remove.
I know this from experience!
Apply the gilding flakes then rub away
Next I mounted coloured card to the
craft card blank.
This photograph really shows you how shiny
the gilding flakes are.
Using some of the left over background card
and lace, I made a band to go across the card.
And so to the completion.
Before adding the band, I applied a sentiment.
I decided to make an extra mat from
one of the Craft cards
Here is the completed card.
I made a small gift tag to go with it using some
left over background card and some wooden
embellishments decorated with gilding wax
and gilding flakes. Finished off by adding
Bakers Twine and blue pearls
This close up shows the tag much better
and the gilding.
Hope you enjoyed watching me make this
Happy crafting, Angela xXx
Certainly did enjoy watching you Angela.
Thank you for your
beautiful card. The gilding looks very
impressive I have to say
