I haven't played with Gilding Flakes for a while - mainly because I am messy at the best of times and gilding flakes are really not something I should be allowed to get my hands on.😳
I have used both of these stamps before (card is HERE) but thought I would try the flakes with the same stamps to see what it looked like.
The verdict is - not too bad at all considering I am a 'flaky' novice!
The bird house is a really old stamp from Chocolate Baroque formerly Elusive Images.
I decided at the time that adding more foliage was probably a step too far as no doubt I wouldn't have got it positioned right but on reflection maybe I should have been brave as the bird house does look a little lonely on just a gold line drawn thread.....
And typical me - the black card I used wasn't big enough for my normal size makes so the gold strip was added - which I think finishes it better - so happy necessity!
