Red and Gold

Red and Gold

Hi There!

Today we are continuing our
theme with a beautiful card by
Claire Jackson

Check this out:

For the red and gold theme I had to get out 
my lovely Viva Decor Maya Gold paint.
The Maya Gold paints are great to work with 
and extremely sparkly. 

I’m not sure the photos do them justice.

Colour a 5” x 5” square of white card with Distress Ink, 
beginning with scattered straw and wild honey in the centre, 
adding festive berries, picked raspberry, barn door and 
aged mahogany outwards. 

Darken the edges with walnut stain.

Use masking tape to fix the stencil in place. 

Gently sponge on gold paint in a light tapping motion 
to prevent paint leaking under the stencil and leave to dry

Emboss a 5 ½” square piece of card and colour with shades of red Distress Ink. 

With a sponge held flat gently highlight the raised areas with gold paint

Add a ribbon to the stencilled layer, hiding the edges underneath 

before matting on to the embossed card 

and adhering to a card blank

To finish the card add a sentiment die cut from gold mirri card 

and metallic stickers to the centres of the flowers

The colours are so rich and warm
This card would brighten anyone's day

Thank you Claire

Not sure I would be able to give this card away
Well, that is, unless I made two. 
Then I could keep one just for me...........

See you tomorrow
