Good Morning Ladies,
I always end up playing catch up after a Bank Holiday weekend, I mean it just doesn't seem like a Wednesday today!
Janet did you get to K & N yesterday? I hope so, it's nice to break the week up but I guess you want to be super cautious not to catch any bugs before you go away. Xxx
Today's card was the end product of a lot of experimenting. I decided that I wanted the Poinsettias to be gold on this card, so my first thought was to emboss my card with the coloured background like yesterday, when it was finished I took a fine paintbrush and added Flake snd glitter glue to all the embossed areas, waiting for it to go tacky then added gold gilding flakes, result- disaster, I am clearly not skilled in painting, the gilding flakes just looked a mess, so in the bin it went! Round two, this time I took my embossing pen and painted the recessed area of the folder, closed it, embossed my card, quickly added embossing powder- it missed half the areas and just looked rubbish, so it followed number 1 into the bin!
Final attempt, I used Evergreen Bough, Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint Oxides and added them to the embossing folder with a brayer. I passed the folder through 3 times to get a good deep emboss, I then used tha dark (back) of piece of Cut & Dry foam to add gilding wax to the Poinsettias, yes it did go slightly over in places, but I think it looks fantastic, I was really pleased with round 3! I mounted it onto Gold mirror card, then onto white card base, then added my sentiment .
I hope you like it ladies,
Have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
