Easter Sunday Gold...


Happy Easter Sunday,

As usual I have made a card or project specifically for today I was going to make an easter egg box as I have done in the past but i just couldn't get it right ( I'm sure that happens to all of us!) So i went with making this gold and white easter card which uses a new technique with the Izink Diamonds!

I stared by cutting my Gerbera Lattice three times in gold dust white card I used spray glue to add 2 of these layered onto another piece of the card.  I then, using a spatula, spread the Gold Izink Diamonds over this so that the glitter paint filled the gaps in the die cut.  I added a further layer on top to neaten the piece however this really wasn't required as it came away very clean.

The centre of the flowers are made by painting the Gold Diamonds onto a piece of card and cutting it out using the press cut card candy die which fits perfectly in the centres.







I wrapped a piece of silk gold ribbon around the background finishing with a messy bow and pearl strings

I stamped the Gerbera daisy stamp in perfect medium onto more of the card and heat embossed it with the new Izink Extra Fine detail gold embossing powder ( this is the finest embossing powder i have ever used its like dust lol)

I cut the flowers out with the matching die and shaped them arranging them on the bow as shown.

I added layers of pearls gold and white with gold mirror card.


Enjoy...
