Gilding Flakes....



Last Thursday I spent a lovely day with my crafting friend Val...its always nice to exchange ideas and also to share stamped images and dies.
Val had shown me a Spellbinders frame that she had gilded using Woodware double sided sticky backed paper instead  of Flitter glue....I came home and created this card.

The lovely scenic image is one I stamped at Val's its a Heartfelt Creations one which I coloured with watercolour pencils. I used a the Garden Lattice embossing folder for the background, Spellbinders tag and the corners are from Whimsy... 

right off to do the ironing now!

I saw your comment Anne and it got me thinking I have not visited for a while which I am afraid is the story of my life the last few weeks as for reasons known only to him, Blogger is being selective with updates on my dashboard and of course I only realise when a comment reminds me as it did here.

As for this card, I would never have thought of using gilding flakes in this way but isn't it so effective, something I am going to gave to give a go, so thanks for the inspiration. And of course apologies for the lack of visits.

Well I missed it too Anne - we all run around like chickens with our heads cut off. That is such a sweet scene. I don't know anything about gilding flakes but I do know that the frame you made a colored is very pretty. Will write soon - I haven't forgotten!
