4 days to go....

Hi Everyone sorry about last night not posting. I had a slight tech hitch and couldn't load up for some reason???????

 I thought I would start with the above picture, this mornings efforts nearly 10 jars of Strawberry Jam cooling .......yummy!!!! ok enough of that....lets get on with the last selection of the 8th May samples...then from Monday  sneaky peeks from the show coming up very soon...
 Today's selection Gilding Flakes there are 3 sets Golden Glow, Forest Glade and Red Gilt, used with the other products from the show Stencils Decoupage and Embossables.
 Oh  I do love using the gilding flakes in this way all old shabby chic, this one with Posey Decoupage everything you see here is stamped with our gilding glue and then gilded with Golden Glow gilding flakes paying special  attention to the edges, I've used a very old  handmade paper/card and then only eversoslightly coloured, the top layer was stamped gilded and then the roll back was cut out, and using the edge of a piece of cut and dry with the glue smudged the edges,the butterflies from that set again was stamped and gilded .
 Another in the same vein this time using the Orchid Decoupage set and this time coloured with polychromos pencils which oil based, the Gilding flakes used here are Forest Glade, using the same technique around all the edges to give that lovely aged look and by adding the lace ribbon and more Butterflies finishes the card.
 as you can see here I have embossed the Daisy Diamonds Embossable then sponged the glue through before gilding with Golden Glow smugged around the edges and then mounted onto Bronze card stock cutting out the center gave me an opportunity to put the greeting in and with the same technique did a butterfly on acetate. to finish the card I arranged the flowers and punched out leaves around the edge of the opening.
 The butterfly from Butterfly curls again with Forest Glade on acetate the border was embossed and then slightly sanded on the dual core card stock ,a bow and wire to Finish in the corner.
 This three panel Card is Delightful, Clean and very easy to do,I embossed  the panels with lily flourishes unfortunately you can see it in this scanned picture added the Butterflies again on acetate with the Gilding Flakes Red gilt, added wire for the feelers ,the nestie lables with the greeting gives an elegant touch.
and the last Sue used this one for the Demo on the show as you can achieve very good effects using red line tape with the gilding flakes, the Butterfly is in 2 layers taken from butterfly curls border and back ground stencils.with Forest Glade for the feelers this time I used a pricking tool through the back ground card stock where I wanted the butterfly to sit and threaded the wire before mounting the butterfly. double ribbon Bow to finish.

Well thats it for today tomorrow we will start on the sneaky peak Over views for the show on thurs.. to see these and more products I've designed and used.

 Enjoy this wonderful weather but don't get burnt.

see you soon..... Happy crafting Jayne x
