I've been thinking a lot about gold (on cards) this week for one reason and another, so it was with a little smile that I saw the new colour challenge at Less is More. Especially as I had just got back from a visit to the craft shop at Lancaster to purchase some gilding flakes. Fate or what? So in between baking bread and toffee bars, and cooking rumblethumps (ask Di) I came up with this:
This was a nightmare to photograph and this was the best I could do! I die cut a circle and then stamped the image from Simply Soft three times in Basic Black. Once the ink had dried, I added glue to the flowers and then rubbed gold gilding flakes on. The lovely big gold band at the back was made by sticking double sided adhesive sheet onto the card base and then rubbing flakes into it. That's all there is to it really, but it sure is sparkly! Here 's a little close-up:
Stamp: Simply Soft (hostess)
Ink: Basic Black
Card: Whisper White
Other: circle die, Big Shot, stamp-a-ma-jig, glue pen, double-sided adhesive sheet, gold gilding flakes (non-SU)
