I am playing around today with some Evaney’s Stamp Designs new stamp set Blooming Special and some tonic gilding flakes. There is a somewhat distressed look about this card that I find utterly special!
I stamped out the sentiment with some cornflower blue Archival ink in the center of some cardstock. Then I started stamping out the flower with versa fine ink and ranger’s sticky embossing powder. I added some sunkissed copper gilding flakes to the sticky embossing power and let the flakes do their thing.
I did the same thing with the leaves, but this time used the silver bullion gilding flakes and touched up the roses with the silver as well.
Finally, I trimmed up the card and added a black matte to the back of it before adhering it to an A2 card frame. Like I said, the card has a bit of a distressed look, but I love the shine the flakes give off!
Make sure you run over to Evaney’s Stamp Designs to see what they have going on. Till the next time, Happy Crafting!
