Here's the card I demoed really badly on the 5pm show on Sunday! Hope you have all learned from my messup!
Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue on my Craft Sheet. Using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam, I applied the glue all over the large stamp in the Couture Creations Floral Wreath 3 in 1 Set. I stamped onto a piece of Rich Red Card. Now, don't apply the Gilding Flakes to the glue until the glue is clear. If it's still blue then you will make a mess like I did on live tv! I used Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes which are lovely. I added some more Flake & Glitter Glue to the top of the stamp, used a piece of paper to mask off the already stamped section and added the image to the bottom of the card. Once again, wait till the glue is clear before adding the flakes. Make sure you clean the glue off the stamp before it dries. I find the rough side of a Grime Boss is best. Next, I did some shadow stamping (got this technique from Sue). I inked up the stamp with Jet Black Archival. I stamped it very slightly to the right of my original stamping. I inked up just the top part of the stamp again and then stamped the bottom of the frame in the same way.
I wrapped a piece of Black American Seam Binding around the area where the join in my stamping showed, I stamped the bottom section of the large stamp again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I used one of the dies in the pack to cut out the motif (easiest if you make yourself a template).
For the background, I stamped the square motif from the set around the sides of a piece of Rich Red Card using Perfect Medium. I then added some Copper, Pale Gold and Silver Mica Powder (available in the Metallics Set or in bigger pots on the show) and brushed off the excess. I misted with some water and heat set.
I tied a bow using 3 lengths of Black American Seam Binding and added a Crystal Sparkler to the centre.
8mm Black Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
