Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Gilded Leafing

| on

Hello, and welcome to my blog.

You are visiting me in Australia, and you may have hopped to me from Lynsay in Canada. Check the links below to keep on hopping...

Get ready to feast your eyes on the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, as the Design Team are featuring a fabulous NEW product; 'Gilded Leafing'.

 I have created a couple of cards based on the Japanese Art of 'Kintsugi' - repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of the breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold.
Built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

My first card front was an experiment using 'Fine Tip Glue' and 'Gilded Leafing', on the Bermuda Bay 'Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper'.

I stamped the flowers and leaves images using 'Coastal Cabana' ink, stamping off the ink as the ombre effect became lighter.
I then added the 'Fine Tip Glue' looking like the paper was 'broken', then added the 'Gilded Leafing' leaving drying time for approximately 10 minutes.

I brushed away the excess 'Gilded Leafing' leaving a somewhat splattering of the 
effect I wanted to create.
However, I finished the card by mounting onto 'Basic Black' cardstock, and adding the 'For You' sentiment for a little simplicity.

My second card is using the 2" off cut from the 'Oh So Ombre DSP'.
I used 'Multipurpose Liquid Glue' for the 'broken' effect, adding the 'Gilded Leafing' and drying for 10 minutes.
This time the 'Kintsugi' was a little more to what I imagined.

I coloured 'Whisper White' cardstock with 'Coastal Cabana' ink using the NEW 'Blending Brushes'.
Stamping the sentiment, die cutting with 'Stitched Shapes Dies' and adding more 'Multipurpose Liquid Glue' and repeating the process.

I added a little bit of texture by adding a layer of 'Basic Black' cardstock embossed with the 'Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder'.

Thankyou for visiting me, and keep on hopping to see what Ruth has in store... see the link to the Design Team Blog list below.

Looking forward to seeing you next time.
