In my last post, I shared some experiments I had done with Starlights paints, from Imagination Crafts. These are so scummy, but I wanted to finish a project for you as well. Here's the above card.
I started by embossing a plain piece of scrap white card. Isn't it wonderful when you can turn a piece of scrap card into something so pretty. I used a sponge to gently sweep the paint over the top of the embossed card, it just highlights the embossing and emphasis the detail.
Look at the sheen on the card! Isn't that attractive.
I then cut a frame out of white card and then gold card, which I glued together. I decorated the frame with Christmas flowers
I then painted a piece of scrap card with the White Gold paint, and blasted it dry with my heat gun. When it was dry, I used a rub-on sentiment. I cut this down and matted and layered gold, then red. I really like this sentiment topper - and all the colours are going to match
I finished the card with the paint. I painted the centre of the flowers. I used the back of the paintbrush to add dots using the platinum dots, which dry slightly raised - and they do make a fantastic finishing touch.
