HLS November CAS Challenge

Wooo hoo! Hi there :) Ready for a new CAS challenge over at Happy Little Stampers



the process of applying gold leaf or gold paint.
the material used in, or the surface produced by applying gold leaf or gold paint.

Suggestions:  use gold on all or part of a card base or embellishment (gold embossing powder, gold metallic pen, gold paint, gold mica powders, Inka gold wax paste, liquid gold pearls, gold shimmer mist, gilding flakes)

Here are some video tutorials for you to check out thanks to Loll :)

Here is my card -

I used gilding on my bottom layer. I used glue to add my gold flakes and then rubbed off the excess. It looks so pretty in real life.
I have embossed my butterfly from the HLS Butterfly Birthday set onto vellum and fussy cut it out. I also used some Gold Flecked Bakers Twine from the HLS shop to layer under the butterfly. The sentiment was embossed in gold. Lastly I used some gold acrylic paint and a brush to throw some splats around.

Our amazing Guest Designer this month is Karen! Thanks so much for joining us!

If you participate in our CAS challenge this month, you are in for a chance to win this stamp set!

If you are a butterfly lover like me, it is a must have in your collection :)

Thanks so much for looking and I hope to see you over there.
