Well I hope all the Christmas cards are made and written as I believe today is the last posting day! I have to admit that mine still aren't so I will try to get them all done and in the post today!
I thought I would share one of my favourite cards fork my recent stamp release. This uses the stamping with Gilding flakes technique however this time I have stamped onto acetate. I hope some of you were able to catch me demo this on Hochanda.
I stamped the main element from the camellia set with cosmic shimmer flake and glitter glue onto CE heat resistant acetate. I left this to go off for a few minutes ( whilst I cleaned the stamp it is very important to clean your stamps after using the flake and glitter glue as they remain sticky!)
Next I added a pinch of Silver Dream gilding flakes over the stamped image I rubbed off the excess using rubit scrubit foam ( this was originally designed for cleaning stamps as I have been reliably informed)
Finally I made up some of the camellia flowers using the SW complete petals die. I shaped them and added some small silver dazzlers in the centre. I grouped them in the opposing 2 corners and added a few layers of the coconut white foundation card.
