Inka Gold Cards

Good morning, happy Friday. Jan is on holidays this week, so I'm standing in for her. I've got two quick & easy Inka Gold cards to show you today..............

I painted a square of white Super Smooth card with Jade Inka Gold, dry embossed it & applied Turquoise Inka Gold to the raised areas with my finger, then I cut the square into three pieces.

I covered another piece of card with embossing ink, applied Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing powder & heat set. Then I used the 
Stampendous Butterflies die cut set to cut the large butterfly.

I made up the card, using layers of black card & Core'dinations card & finished with some gems & a sentiments from the Stampendous Life Words stamp set..........

The second card is another triple panel, this time painting rows of colour directly onto white card. I applied Sweet Poppy white dimension paste through the Imagination Crafts Diamonds stencil on top & when the paste was dry, I replaced the stencil & applied Brown Gold Inka Gold on top. I mixed black gesso with a little water for the splatters. 

I finished the card with some die cut letters & a punched out heart..........

  1. Hi Kristen love both cards...I didn't realise you could paint directly with Inka Golds so there's another technique to try! And that's a lovely butterfly...always been a bit mean....ahem!...frugal with my Shabby's!! Have a good weekend xx

    1. Thank you Chris, I'm glad you like them. The Inka Golds really are fab, you can do the same with them that you can do with any acrylic paint, just by mixing them with water. And I used to be .....frugal with my Shabbys too, but a little goes a surprisingly long way. :) Hope you have a great weekend too.
