Inka Gold and Gears

Welcome

This is one of those cards that ended up totally different to what I had envisioned - and actually quite quick to make.


I embossed a layer of cream card with an S.B. Em-Bossing folder that seems to be now unavailable.


I then picked up my bronze Inka Gold paste - it had gone a bit dry, despite retaining the paper layer under the lid.  I did not despair as I have painted with this, using a wet paintbrush to pick up the paint, so I put a couple of drops of water on the paste and then rubbed some onto my finger tip and then over the embossing - you can see in the photo above the wonderful sheen it gives


To finish I stamped and white embossed the sentiment onto a SB labels diecut, layered it onto a striped ribbon and assembled the card.

Turned out fabulous. Love the metallic look, perfect for a masculine card.

The coppery gleam makes these fab gears totally stand out. I'm pleased that your Inca paste was able to rehydrate with some water. I had some of the small pots just turn to nearly dust, and not able to rehydrate at all. This may not be what you envisioned but it is terrific, Love the blue ribbon stripe and what a perfect masculine card. TFS & have a great weekend. Hugs
