Expressions in Ink with Gold Accents

 Finally this gorgeous paper is back in stock, it's the Expressions in Ink! Click on the shopping cart if you are interested... rumor has it, it will sell quickly!

Lots of different ways to add gold accents.

Above I layered gold foil below the paper, used gold embossing for the hello greeting and added 5 gold shimmer dots.  The envelope uses the big stamp with the "swirling" image.

This card uses gold leafing.  Gold leafing can be applied with Heat and Stick powder or other adhesives. I used liquid Tombow glue with a toothpick, drawing fine lines of glue on the image (created with the big "swirling" stamp.  Let the glue dry about 5-10 min so there is no white glue showing (it will still be sticky).  Then press on gold leafing and remove excess leafing with a dry sponge.

This card uses the gold leaves from the Ephemera pack and the gold 6 sided figure. I also used gold shimmer ribbon on the card.  The back of the pink paper is the fun gold-striped paper.  The pink flowers are make with Shimmer vellum with a gold dot in the center. 

I added gold with this card using the large die from this Artistic Expression bundle - the dies are super. This big flower image and a big leaf are some of the fun elements.  You'll see vellum underneath the gold.

Of course all the cards used the paper with the gold element "shot through" the pattern. I hope you can see this through the vellum.

An amazing stamp and die set, I highly recommend this and the paper.  Click on the shopping cart and search for "expressions" to see it all.

Happy crafting MaryKate
