Sticking with the Butterfly Theme...

Hi all,

For today's card I had been experimenting a little. I have had quite a few emails recently asking if you can use the WOW bonding powder with guilding flakes... Well the answer is yes you can! If you stamp with versamark and then emboss as usual with the bonding powder until it has melted (it goes clear), then whilst the powder is still a little warm dunk it in your guilding flakes and press the flakes onto the image then polish off as usual, a little tip though... If y have to reheat the powder make sure the lid is on your pot of flakes!! And yes I have now learnt this from experience!lol to mount the card I stamped the butterfly trails stap in the background using London Fog momento ink pad and used flitterglu and flakes to edge the card, to finish I add a few jewels to the centres of the butterfly's and a sentiment to the bottom.

Bye for now,
Chloe

  2. Oh wow, that is so pretty! I love the how the gilding flakes look. I bought the Monarch butterfly and butterfly background at Harrogate last weekend, they're really beautiful x
