The Wow Factor! "The Sizzle!" (as the dear husband calls it). Gilding the Lily.
Gilding is back (did it ever go away?) Today's card features gilding and it's really simple. All this card needs is a little sentiment to set it off.
And imagine it in pink with copper, maybe a flourish stencil? Or Navy with big stars in silver. Or perhaps just a thin strip at the bottom of a card. Gilding is a technique worth learning. Today's video features this classic technique. It's foolproof as long as you use the right glue. I like the Flitter Glu and DecoArts the best. The Aleene's Tack it should work but I haven't tried it.
Chances are you have something in your Sticky Arsenal that will work. The gilding flakes are about $10/bottle - the Tonic are new on the market at about $8. I've linked a whole bunch of cardstock and flakes below mostly because I kept having ideas as I was perusing. LOL. Who wouldn't? And here's the video.
I hope you enjoy the video. Let me know if you have any tips or tricks on gilding. I like these new flakes but the sheets are fine too. The sheets are not like the DecoArts or Minc transfer foils. They have no backing and are very light weight. Here is Mona Lisa brand from Speedball at Amazon.
