Indigoblu Challenge - Going for Gold

This project is my entry into the Indigoblu Challenge blog - Going for Gold.
http://indigoblublogchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/challenge-13-going-for-gold.html

I used Morris Dance gilding flakes on double sided adhesive then on the other side I attached heat resistant acetate.  I then stamped onto the acetate, using the Wild Meadow set, and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.



For the side panel I embossed the burlap panel (from the Sarah's Choice set) using detail gold embossing powder (I stamped this twice).  

For the sentiment I used the free stamp from the April, 2014 Craft Stamper Magazine.  This I stamped in black Archival, dried with the heat gun and then over stamped it, slightly offset, with Versamark and embossed again with gold detail powder.


I then mat and layered the gilding flake piece onto gold mirri card, black card and Kraft card to frame to frame the work.  The sentiment I layered onto black card.

A bow made from Champagne coloured crinkle ribbon covered the join in the burlap stamps,

Below is a second version where I layered a butterfly, which had been gold embossed onto acetate, over the black butterfly which acted as a shadow,

  8. Good luck in the challenge Yvonne, your card is absolutely stunning. Love what you have done with the butterfly in the second card, very effective. Can I ask what ink you used to stamp on the acetate please? Pat x

    1. Thank you Pat for your lovely comment.
      I used Versamark on the acetate but I lightly stamped it onto scrap paper before going to the acetate as I find that you lose a lot of the detail if you go straight to the acetate xx
