This technique gives gorgeous results. I am always looking out for interesting ways to use my stencils and this one is very satisfying. The background is definitely the star here. Most important tip for using gilding flakes: close all the windows and do not sneeze! They are incredibly light and will go everywhere given the… Continue reading Gilding flake swirls
I don’t care if the digi stamp is called “hello friend turtle”, it has feet not flippers so it must be land-dwelling, therefore it’s a tortoise (checks… okay, technically all tortoises are turtles but still…).
