I am here with my mid month reminder for our challenge at CAS Stencil set by Cathy.
Cathy chose Gilding Flakes for her theme and we hope that you can come along and give this technique a go - my Gilding Flakes were gathering dust in a drawer until this month!
I used the same stencil for this card as I did for my first one but instead used black card as the base.(My first one is HERE)
I wanted a card which would be OK for a bloke - (hate 😖doing man cards) hence the black and silver colour scheme.
I simply used some circle dies to cut out my gilded piece and a wavy die so I could insert the piece of silver card which has a matt finish rather than a mirri one.
Using the same stencil on different coloured card gave a completely different finish and although it was difficult to capture the shine on the circles but happy with the finished piece!
There's some video links over on the challenge blog - so dust off the flake jars and join Guest Designer Mac and the rest of our really talented team and upload a make into the gallery!
