Letter rack and Gilding flakes

I have had the blank MDF letter rack hanging about for months so I thought I would paint it and show you can use gilding flakes on wood as well as paper.

The rack was painted with Kaisercraft acrylic paint , then I dry brushed a darker colour over the top to age it. Next I used a crackle stamp to make a distressed look all over the back and front with a Adirondack ink pad. I then stamped the flourish stamp a few times from Indigoblu with Flitter glu and applied the flakes and buffed off as you usually would.
I stamped the verse on a piece of card and then added some stamps from another Indigoblu set and gilded certain areas. Finally I stamped  butterfly from the set onto acetate and using the new Cosmic Shimmer flake glue that comes in a bottle like a nail varnish, I applied the glue to the reverse side and waited for it to go tacky then applied flakes and buffed off excess. This was then attached with some foam pads to create dimension.
Lastly, I took some patterned paper from the shop and covered the inside of the rack to give it a more finished look.
