Trying out a new-to-me product

 Hello and welcome!
I recently purchased a jar of Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes, 
and had some fun getting crazy messy with it.
The jar I used is called Summer Meadow. It has gold, copper,
and turquoise flakes. So pretty!
I don't have any dry-to-tacky glue yet, but I got around
that by adhering an adhesive sheet to some black card stock.
The sticky side is actually the side you want to apply the
gilding flakes to. Here is a good tutorial that explains it.
The only thing I did differently is that I used a stencil brush
instead of my fingers to burnish the flakes.
One thing: if you try this, make sure your window is closed, and
your fan is off, and don't sneeze! LOL!

It's so incredibly gorgeous in real life!

I used some alcohol ink looking paper for the main panel, added a 
clear sticker trimmed onto some white card stock, and finished the
butterfly with some black rhinestones.

I die cut other images along with this butterfly so I'll be showing
how I made them into cards in the near future.
I hope that you have a great rest of your day. Thanks for visiting!
