Inka-Gold

My third and last post today.  A bit like buses.... no sign of one for ages, then three come along at once! ;-)

Lisa B. Designs challenge this month is 'Inka Gold Metallic Paints/Mica Powders!!'  I bought two pots of Inka-Gold in silver and turquoise a couple of months ago at my local monthly crop and craft day, but they've sat unopened until now, with me plucking up courage to use them.  The challenge closes tomorrow, so here's what I came up with today.
 First I embossed two off-cuts of white linen card with a Cuttlebug 'Floral Screen' embossing folder. I used my finger to spread the Inka-Gold over each piece, before buffing it.  I then cut four squares, corner rounding opposite corners, then matted them on black card.  I used linen card with the Inka-Gold again, then used this to punch out flowers and mat the sentiment.  Silver and turquoise pearls were added to the centre of the flowers.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  1. Your card looks great Liz. I love the colours you've used. I bought a gold and a pink some time ago and only recently used them. Don't they give a lovely rich finish. I really want the silver, particularly, having seen your card. Barbxx

  7. Hi again Liz!
    Oh this is a stunner!
    I have not used or seen Inka-Gold paints before - I will have to investigate!!!
    The effect is gorgeous and by covering an embossed card it really shows it off!
    Thanks for entering the playground again.

    1. They're really easy to use Connie. Even on card they give a lovely metallic sheen. I'll definitely be using them again and hopefully get a few more colours. xx
