So many colours...!

My latest DT Project for Creative Expressions was born because I had intended to make a single colour card as I don't make cards often. I stamped a dress from the Gala Event stamp set several Adirondack Inks and I just couldn't decide which one to choose so I used them all! I cut the dress forms out and edged them with the now obligatory Vintage Photo Distress Ink!
The Adirondack Inks I used (in order!) are: Red Pepper: Sunset Orange; Sunshine YellowCitrus; Sailboat BluePurple Twilight
For the sentiment I used several of the inks on the same stamp adding to the rainbow feel of the card. I really must learn to make my mind up which of these colours is my favourite but it's a pretty tough decision!

Hi Gabrielle
Stunning card! Love the stamp and love the way you used so many colours. The ink colours are really amazing and go together so well. I would really have a hard time picking just one colour I would love the most. Very stylish card indeed.
May I ask you for a massive favour, Gabrielle? Please can you vote for me here if you think my card is good enough of a vote.
Thank you
Michaela xx

I stumbled across your blog. Always a pleasure seeing another crafter getting pleasure from what they do.

I sometimes make my own Christmas cards, I make lino cuts and print them on my old hand press

Im'e a gilder and use gold leaf and imitation gold leaf rather a lot.

Have you thought of gilding onto paper?

It's really quite easy to gild onto paper, there are now modern gold sizes that are simple to use, and there are various ways to create antique and distressed finishes as well., like the crackle glaze and antique glaze.

If you have a moment, pop over to my site, there is quite a lot about gilding onto paper, in particular there is an old bookbinders recipe which you can use to make really authentic looking imitation vellums and parchment papers from ordinary papers.

Good luck to us all.
