All that glitters!

Good morning to you! I do think that these half term holidays go too quickly! I really could get used to being at home! Well a girl can dream! 

I still have the weekend to enjoy and with a mixed media workshop on Sunday enjoy it I will!

I wanted to share with you a card I did for the last Clarity stamp show and used the Shepherds Purse stamp set for. This time I used the Clarity black shiny card and decided to have a go at using gilding flakes. I do like gilding flakes...just don't breathe to hard or sneeze!!!

I used versamark to stamp with and added mica boss to create the sticky parts to stick the gilding flakes to. I did try and pick out the gilding flakes depending on which part of the flowers they were going on to. I also did the Save the Date sentiment from the wedding set. I swiped the edges of the card with glue and added gilding flakes around the edges to get a distressed look. Then I matted it onto black the grey the onto a black card blank. Then a good polish to make it all shiny and gilttery!

It is pouring down with rain here so I think I have to have a crafty play!
Enjoy your day!

Happy Crafting
