Play time....

I've had a play around with gilding flakes over the past couple of days as I love the colours that they produce when burnished, the back of the acetate ticket has gilding flakes on and the frame has smidges of pink foil on .....I love the effect as it adds bling to the frame, talking of which I made with tissue tape and then alchohol inked over the top with eggplant, rust and gold, the script didn't show up as well as I thought it might, probably a little heavy handed with the ink or the colours were too dark. All of the stamps and images are from Crafty Individuals that I have used......so love the images that Jean and Malcolm sell....yummy.








Challenges
