Silver Flakes...

Happy Thursday,

Quick post today showcasing a rad I demoed on hochanda using my Snowflake Lattice and Izink Diamonds glitter paint.

I cut the lattice three times and glued 2 tether over a piece of white card.  I then added izink diamonds in silver over the top using a spatula.  The great thing about the diamonds is that all the colours comes form the glitter and it works as a paint and paste.

Once dry ( which takes about 20 minutes) I added the third die cut over the top so that the glitter is inset into the background.

I stamped and die cut the poinsettias and then made up the flowers.  To add the glitter I simply painted the diamonds onto the edges of the petals I love how this works as well as a paint with a brush and the flowers dry in about 2 minutes.

A few layers of silver and white with the flowers and foliage through the middle and finished!

  1. Morning John, lovely sample today, I remember watching you doing this on Hochanda using a really rich blue colour, it was amazing and so quick.

    The new packaging of your dies really is brilliant, and so easy to store then the plastic ones that are on the market by others. xx

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
