I've not been around long today. I had a lie in as I didn't sleep well last night. It was one of those times where your mind just won't switch off .
Anyway, I'd like to enter my card today in the Try it on Tuesday Challenge which is 'Hot & Wild' and Crafting From the Heart #69
I don't know what the stamp is. It's wood mounted and one I bought from a friend who was moving abroad and selling her stuff off.
I stamped this handsome boy onto acetate then on the back coloured the sky area blue and the right hand side brown using permanent markers.
When I got out my tub of gilding flakes, which I'd not used for a time it was mainly small pieces and dust. There were lots of the green coloured flakes in there which I didn't want to use so it took quite a long time to select the pieces that I did want to use. I made sure he had really bright gold eyes!
After gilding I sprinkled clear glitter onto the coloured areas then mounted onto black card and tore the bottom. I hadn't got brads in the colours I wanted so used peel off markers to colour them. The background card is a very pale blue which doesn't show too well in the photo. I had to take lots photos of this card a before I got rid of the reflection from the acetate.
The sun is shining here and we're meeting friends for lunch today. I hope you have a good day too.
