Flaky Fun

Happy Boxing Day! Hope you had a good day yesterday and are not too stuffed still. We had the usual quiet day here, but today we are off to my mum's for a less quiet day.

Today I have another project using the Henna stamps by Creative Expressions. I've tried taking the pics in different lights, but I really struggled to get a shot that did it justice - these are the best I could get, but take it from me the combination of the gilding flakes and the stamps is stunning.

Here's how I did it.

Squeeze a good 'blob' of Flake and Glitter glue onto a craft sheet, and use a piece of cut and dry foam to apply the glue to your stamp.

Apply the Verdigris flakes, making sure you have plenty of coverage.

Take a piece of Rub it, Scrub it sponge to remove the excess flakes and reveal the design.

To make the flowers, you will need three gilded flowers stamped with the Mandala

Cut up the flowers as above.

Curl the petals and glue the flower layers as shown.

Stack the layers and use plenty of Cosmic Shimmer glue to ensure a good stick.

I dd the same to my mdf blank after painting with Claudine Hellmuth Black Gesso and using the Mosaic stamp. 

As an accent I added Golden Light Gilding Wax then arranged my flowers around a Seam Binding bow and an Adhesive Swirl

Thanks for stopping by.
