Precious metals are something that I don't reach for often when crafting, however, the Winnie & Walter Gossip Column #5 spoke to me as a true challenge. I recently acquired some foil and a laminator so I was able to sit down and play.
I started by painting some Minc Reactive Paint onto cream cardstock. I then topped it with Gold, Silver and Rose Gold Foil and ran it through my laminator. (This Minc Paint is kinda crazy, the first part being that it has "this can cause cancer warning" and the second, was pretty liquidy so it got everywhere. Then it dries super sticky, so it was difficult to pick up the mess! I can overlook this though, because wow, was it ever cool when you foil it!) I inked the edges of the panel and mounted it to a cream cardstock base.
I finished the card with some sentiment panels from Winnie & Walter's The Big, Bold and Extras Stamp Set as well as some gold sequins and Nuvo Gloss Drops in Ebony Black. Not my usual kind of card, but so glad that I created it and I think I can use it for gals or guys, and for many occasions.
