Inka Gold and Clay Cards.....

Good Morning all,

My word this week has gone quick! We have been so busy since the event day getting the stock levels correct on the website, I just don't know where the time has gone?
There was a lot of items that sold out on my Event Day but there will be new stock in in the next few days, the Inka Gold's being some of them as well as new items of course.....

Hasn't the weather been depressing though, such as shame for the all the children as they have just broke up for summer holidays!!! British summer huh!

Anyway I have been so busy that I have not had time to play more with the Inka Golds since my Event Day ( withdrawal symptom's already, they are so lush! ) so I thought that I would explain to you how I made the make and take cards that the lovely ladies made on the day. So here they are below......

These were all made in the same way using Inka Gold Paints and diluting them with a paint brush and water. I used super smooth card and just chose two colours for each ( Cobalt Blue and Silver for the first one ) and brushed them across the card using one colour first one way and then the other colour on the opposite side brushing it in to the first colour. Repeat this process until they blend in to one another smoothly, they are really easy to paint with and a little goes a long way.....

Allow to dry or heat gun the painted background. Then I chose a stencil (Doodle Crosses for the first one ), I used a piece of Cut'n'dry Foam and sponged the opposite colour to what I had used on the background, so silver on cobalt blue and vice versa to reflect the opposite side.
Then using Black Stazon, I stamped my message Stampendous Cherish Dream and then added a splattered circle stamp from IndigoBlu Ink Splats ( I am really loving this set )....
The embellishment I made using Martha Stewart Air Drying Crafters Clay and the butterfly from the Woodland Silicon Mould Set. When it was thoroughly dry ( 24 hours ) I painted it with Deco Art Black Media Gesso, left to dry and then added some Silver Inka Gold with my finger on to the butterflies and then used Cosmic Shimmer Glue to attach them to the card......
