Gilding flakes class

This week I had a class using gilding flakes. We made 2 cards using 2 different techniques, first one using Indigo Blu Flitter glue

Apologies for photo not being great but photographing mirror card is a nightmare, I added some gold Nailheads to the corners in class but forgot to take pic, will replace next week

products used:

Stamps: Woodware In the Hedgerow
Glue: Flitter Glu from Indigo Blu
Inks: Archival Black
Flakes: Cosmic Shimmer Egyptian Gold

products used:

Stamps: Justrite Fancy sentiments
Die : Marianne Butterfly
Embellishments: Mark Richards Nailheads
cardstock: kraft and mirror from shop and Woodware adhesive sheets

The second card uses double sided adhesive paper to run through a die cutting machine. When you take the top layer off its sticky enough to hold your flakes, rub away excess flakes and you are left with a great embellishment to a card. I stuck mine onto a piece of thin card before running through machine so I could have it attached to card with some foam pads down the middle.

All stamps and dies can be brought from Forget Me Knot contact details on side bar. Next weeks class is using Distress ink pads and pens, there are a few spaces left if you are interested.
