Here is the next sneaky peep at my projects in the current issue of Crafts Beautiful, January 2013.
These seven cards were to feature gilding flakes. I had never actually tried them before this project, they are fantastic. The effects you get with them are amazing. Rather than go for the normal gold, silver and bronze, I went for mixed flakes.
The flakes are called Mega Flakes by IndigoBlu and some of the mixed ones are simply stunning. The three I used were Winter Dawn, Morris Dance and Royal Peacock. I think the Royal Peacock is my fave. It has flecks of blues and greens, in with the silver and gold. The Morris Dance has a more red tone to it with a hint of blue and green. The Winter Dawn, is mostly silver but has touches of blue, gold and green. IndigoBlu also do a starter kit, which has everything you need to get going right away. You can buy the starter kit with a pot of Winter Dawn included, or without. Go on, give it a try. I promise you'll be hooked.
The January issue is available now from good newsagents and retailers and comes with an exclusive vibrant paper pack especially designed for Crafts Beautiful. It also has a few ideas on how to use your free gift.
