Happy Thursday All!
Isn't it hard to believe that we are into our 2nd week of August
already and it will soon be 'Fall' before we know it!
Speaking of Fall
I have a pretty 'fall-ish' card to show you using the new
Leafy Wreath die!
I die cut my leafy wreath then used Gilding Flakes to coat it.
Let me give a small tutorial of how I did it.
First die cut your leafy wreath die.
Then coat your entire wreath with glue.
I used Cosmic shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue.
Let it sit for about 15 minutes,
this allows the glue to get real sticky.
Next start applying your gilding flakes with your fingers
making sure to cover the entire glued surface.
I used Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes .
Be very generous and cover it well!
Once entirely covered,
use a soft brush and start brushing the excess
You can put the flakes back in the jar for another use later.
Once all the flakes are off, I use my fingers to 'shine' the flakes up a bit.
That's all there is to it.
A 'Tip' is to spray your finished gilded project with a clear spray.
I use a very inexpensive aerosol hair spray for mine.
I simply finished with a bow and an embossed sentiment
that I then punched with a circle punch.
Make sure and visit all the other inspiring places to see the
new Tutti Designs dies:

'I' will be here each and every Thursday.

Beautiful card using the wreath Diane! love the gilding flakes.ReplyDelete
Just beautiful and learned a lot about the gilding flakes. I will have to try this.ReplyDelete
A very beautiful way to use gliding flakes to highlight a gorgeous die. I am curious about your tip to use a sealer at the finish. May I ask the reasoning? Thank you for taking the time to reply.ReplyDelete
I just like the finished look and then it is pretty much guaranteed to stay in place (just in case MY glue is missed in a few places, that is all ) but not necessary if YOU don't want to seal it...my preference only..LOL!! Thank you for your nice comments Linda S.!Delete
