Nuvo Gilding Flakes and Embossing Powders - A Selection of Cards - Karen

Good morning Crafty Friends !

I do apologise for the delay in sharing some of the cards I made with these amazing products but it took a tad longer than I thought to get myself back together after finally getting a new laptop.  Thankfully now I think I have a good deal of my software and files back so I am able to show you these which were made using the Tonic Studios Prom Princess Stamp Set, Gold Nuvo Embossing Powder, Nuvo Alcohol Pens, Sunkissed Copper Nuvo Gilding Flakes, Glitter Gold Nuvo Sheen Glitter and Copper Penny Nuvo Crystal Drops.  The dies I used were both the Plain and Scalloped Circle Layering Die Set, Tea Party Base Die and the New Clarice Upper and Lowercase Alphabet Sets.

You can really see the effect that the Gilding Flakes give you.

The Embossing detail is fabulous on the stamped image and I chose to only colour the skin tones on this sample.
I went for a different approach with this next card, again using the gilding flakes but this time as a base layer but adding a gilded wording.  I used the Nuvo Clear Embossing Powder, Prom Princess Stamp Set, Bright Gold Nuvo Crystal Drops and Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes.  The Dies used were Deco Oval Trellis Die Set, Amelia Embossing Folder and the Expressions Sentiment Die Set.

 After embossing the image using clear embossing powder onto white card and colouring using one of the Inkylicious duster brushes and Antique Linen Distress Inks and just touching the very edge with Vintage Photo, you need to give the image a little wipe with a tissue or some kitchen roll to remove any ink from the actual embossed lines just to show the Emboss Resist Technique. 

Another close up of the lovely effect you get with Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
I hope you can catch some of the shows with Jodie throughout the week for more inspiration from the Tonic Studios Design Team.
