Playing with Gilding Wax - The Inspirers DT

Hello :o)

I've got so behind with blogging, I've lost track of which cards have been blogged and which haven't... will try and catch up with them all over the next couple of weeks!  Here's one I made for The Inspirers DT for Crafter's Companion.

I bought some gilding wax last year and haven't really done much with it yet, then spotted a card in Crafter's Inspiration Issue 13 that inspired me to dig it out and have a play.  I embossed a couple of pieces of black card with the embossing folder that came with the magazine, then rubbed the gilding wax on with my fingers and gave it a quick 'buff' with a sheet of kitchen roll... love the effect with the spotty embossing!  I did the same with the die cut pieces - it's all cut from black card with gilding wax rubbed on.

Items Used
Embossing folder - FREE with Crafter's Inspiration Issue 13
Sara Signature Birthday Party Collection - Birthday Wish die
Sara Signature Autumn Morning Collection - Flourish Leaves die (cut up)
Gilding Wax - Empire Gold

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
