Bah! Humbug! #11 - Metallic

Posted by PicasaHave used gilding flakes on this 6 x 6 card - the edge of the black card has been taped using Great Tape that I rubbed and distorted before sprinkling with Copper Thunder gilding flakes. The colours in this selection are wonderful and can be seen in the top border quite clearly. The main image, by Elusive Images has been gilded with gold flakes onto acetate. The base card is cream and has been stamped in black using the equally wonderful Sanded backgrounder from Stampin Up. I am very pleased with how this card has turned out. It looks very striking.
Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment - I enjoy keeping in touch.

  9. Absolutely gorgeous Janet. Have toyed with the idea of getting gilding flakes but I'm a messy enough crafter as it is so have resisted so far lol! Love the effects you have created though. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
