Hope you are all well. Been a funny sort of week this week. Been busy at work again and after dinner in the evening have not had much time (if any) left for crafting.
Tomorrow is going to be a long day at work as I am on a training course all day. With the travelling to the course I will be leaving home at 7.00am and not getting home until after 6.00pm. This is a long day for me so not looking forward to it.
So with that in mind I decided that I was going to have a play in my crafty room tonight. Last Sunday I went to a Sincerely Yours Paper Craft show and bought some new goodies. One of the things I bought was some gilding flakes which I really wanted to have a play with.
The gilding flakes were in a set from Indigo Blu and came with the glue for using with stamps. I used a stamp set that I have had for ages. I followed the instructions, applied the glue to the stamp and stamped the image onto black card. I then applied the gilding flakes, rubbed off the excess and this is the result. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. So sparkly. I created another mat with gilding flakes for the image to sit on.
I used several punches on this card. Since I have been using die cuts my punches have been neglected so time to put that right. The black card at the side, the corners of the image and all the little flowers were done using a punch. I added some ribbon, lace and pearls to complete the look.
This card is for my daughters to give their Nan for her birthday in November. It also fits in nicely with the October challenge at Sir Stampalot which is to use punches.
I am now off to try and catch up with some commenting. Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely comments you leave. I apologise if I don't get to visit you all very often. Time always runs away from me in the evenings. But I do appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for taking the time out to pop by.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot - Punch away
Natalie and Amy - Birthday bling
A Gem of a Challenge - Flowers
Hotshot Craft - Bling it on
