Inka Gold and Clay Cards.....

Good Morning all,

My word this week has gone quick! We have been so busy since the event day getting the stock levels correct on the website, I just don't know where the time has gone?
There was a lot of items that sold out on my Event Day but there will be new stock in in the next few days, the Inka Gold's being some of them as well as new items of course.....

Hasn't the weather been depressing though, such as shame for the all the children as they have just broke up for summer holidays!!! British summer huh!

Anyway I have been so busy that I have not had time to play more with the Inka Golds since my Event Day ( withdrawal symptom's already, they are so lush! ) so I thought that I would explain to you how I made the make and take cards that the lovely ladies made on the day. So here they are below......

These were all made in the same way using Inka Gold Paints and diluting them with a paint brush and water. I used super smooth card and just chose two colours for each ( Cobalt Blue and Silver for the first one ) and brushed them across the card using one colour first one way and then the other colour on the opposite side brushing it in to the first colour. Repeat this process until they blend in to one another smoothly, they are really easy to paint with and a little goes a long way.....

Allow to dry or heat gun the painted background. Then I chose a stencil (Doodle Crosses for the first one ), I used a piece of Cut'n'dry Foam and sponged the opposite colour to what I had used on the background, so silver on cobalt blue and vice versa to reflect the opposite side.
Then using Black Stazon, I stamped my message Stampendous Cherish Dream and then added a splattered circle stamp from IndigoBlu Ink Splats ( I am really loving this set )....
The embellishment I made using Martha Stewart Air Drying Crafters Clay and the butterfly from the Woodland Silicon Mould Set. When it was thoroughly dry ( 24 hours ) I painted it with Deco Art Black Media Gesso, left to dry and then added some Silver Inka Gold with my finger on to the butterflies and then used Cosmic Shimmer Glue to attach them to the card......

Inka Gold Leftovers

Good morning, it's Monday again, hope you had a good weekend. The reason for the title is that all the Inka Gold on these cards was left over from other projects - waste not, want not!

The first card began with left over Cobalt Blue mixed with water, I just put a piece of white card on top of the paint, moved around a bit, lifted it off & set it aside to dry.

Later on, I had Lava Red & Champagne Inka Golds, which had dried out on the blending mat, so I reactivated them with water & brushed them randomly over the Cobalt Blue, Lava Red first, then the Champagne.

Sometime later I had leftover Hydrangea IG, so I mixed it with Sweet Poppy white dimension paste & applied them through the Pronty Circles 1 stencil & later again, repeated that step with paste with Champagne IG.

Each time there was a little paste left over & that went to make this card.........

The sentiments on both cards are from the Stampendous Life Words stamp set.

Inka Gold Cards

Good morning, happy Friday. Jan is on holidays this week, so I'm standing in for her. I've got two quick & easy Inka Gold cards to show you today..............

I painted a square of white Super Smooth card with Jade Inka Gold, dry embossed it & applied Turquoise Inka Gold to the raised areas with my finger, then I cut the square into three pieces.

I covered another piece of card with embossing ink, applied Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing powder & heat set. Then I used the 
Stampendous Butterflies die cut set to cut the large butterfly.

I made up the card, using layers of black card & Core'dinations card & finished with some gems & a sentiments from the Stampendous Life Words stamp set..........

The second card is another triple panel, this time painting rows of colour directly onto white card. I applied Sweet Poppy white dimension paste through the Imagination Crafts Diamonds stencil on top & when the paste was dry, I replaced the stencil & applied Brown Gold Inka Gold on top. I mixed black gesso with a little water for the splatters. 

I finished the card with some die cut letters & a punched out heart..........
